Taipei, Taiwan

Construction of Taipei 101, the world’s highest building, was ordered to be suspended yesterday after workmen on the 90th floor dropped a load of steel plate that injured four people on the ground below and damaged two taxis.

According to Lin Pei-yuan, a deputy director of the Taipei 101 construction project, workers were trying to operate a three-ton swing crane to move a batch of narrow steel bars and plates from the 90th floor to the 91st floor when the load fell, probably because of strong winds.
