Explosion at Foxconn Plant in Chengdu Kills Two

An explosion at Foxconn’s Chengdu plant, which manufactures the iPad 2, resulted in the death of two workers this morning. Reports also indicate that at least 16 additional workers were injured, and 3 remain in critical condition. There is no word on the cause of the explosion, but the initial investigation suggests that it was not due to human error. Witnesses told the 21st Century Business Herald that they saw lightning hit the A05 building just before the explosion.

The video below was taken by a worker at the plant.
