A 13-story apartment building under construction in Shanghai has toppled over almost intact, killing one worker.

Footage broadcast on state broadcaster CCTV shows the whole building lying on its side.The building reportedly tipped over at the base, crumbling to the ground in one big piece.

It's believed the 28-year-old worker killed had gone into the building to get his tools and tried to jump out the window when the building fell.
