Workers repair hot water pipes on Beilishi Road where a woman fell into scalding water on Sunday.
A young woman who fell into scalding water under the pavement died after days of fighting for her life at a hospital in Beijing, the Beijing News reported.
Yang Erjing, 27, was walking on Beilishi Road in Beijing's Xicheng district on Sunday when a section of pavement collapsed and she fell into 90℃ water, which had leaked from underground heating pipes.
Yang suffered serious burns to 99 percent of her body. The party responsible for the accident is still unclear as an investigation by Xicheng district's work safety bureau and Beijing District Heating Group is underway.
