The rescue headquarters recently released a list of the 10 victims killed in the bridge collapse accident on Feb. 1 in Sanmenxia, Central China’s Henan Province.   

However, netizens doubted the name list a “shrink-version” as the driver of truck carrying fireworks, who died on the scene, was not in the list.   

To find out the truth, reporter tried to contact families of the driver, failed to get in touch. And local authorities also refused to answer the question.   

According to the previous report, ten people died and 11 others were injured when an expressway viaduct partially collapsed due to an explosion involving a truck carrying fireworks last Friday morning in Henan.  

The explosion occurred at 8:52 a.m. on a 30-meter-high viaduct in Mianchi County, Sanmenxia City. An 80-meter-long section of the southern lane of the viaduct collapsed after the explosion.
