A well-known fengshui master regularly patronised by celebrities was buried alive and killed in a landslide last Sunday, according to Hong Kong’s Sing Tao Daily.
Zheng Guoqiang braved the rain with a priest to visit a graveyard in Zhaoqing, Guangdong in order to survey the area’s fengshui. However, unexpected landslides were encountered, and both of them along with five other locals were buried alive in the mud. It took more than 200 emergency workers to extricate the seven of them, out of which six were killed and one was injured. Both Master Zheng and the priest were killed, and their families notified.
Workers at the graveyard contacted the police immediately when they saw the landslide. Out of the seven who were buried alive in the landslide, five died on the spot after they have been extricated from beneath the mud, while another one died at the hospital. The remaining victim is currently in hospital and is no longer in critical condition.
Authorities in Zhaoqing said that thorough investigations into the cause of the accident are being made, and several task forces have been established to undertake a comprehensive survey of other potential sites where geological disasters may occur.
