The death toll of an accident at an LNG storage tank construction site in east China's Jiangsu Province on Tuesday rose to eight, after six injured ones failed medical treatment, said a hospital source.

The source confirmed that five other injured workers are receiving treatment in the hospital.

The accident happened at 7:50 a.m., when a falling mould killed two construction workers on the spot at the Yangkou Port of Rudong County.

Firefighters said there were a total of 110 workers when the accident happened. The local government has evacuated workers and started an investigation.

The building of the LNG receiving facility is undertaken by the Shanghai Power Construction Engineering Co. at the Yangkou Port. The project has been designed with an annual capacity of handling 6.5 million tons of imported LNG.
