A brief clip from a Discovery show that has a lot of good shots of the work going on in the city.

This short peice from Sharjah tells the story of an illegal Bangladeshi migrant who died trying to evade authorities, after he jumped from the seventh story of an apartment. It also notes that an Indian construction worker recently died after being hit on the head by falling concrete, at a site where the managment did not provide hardhats to the employees. In passing it mentions that in the past 2 weeks alone there have been 10 deaths of construction workers in the city due to lax safety standards. For a city neighbouring Dubai these events seem to have a disturbingly low level of publicity.

A selection of shots from what is possibly the craniest city on earth.

A construction crane collapsed onto Dubai’s main multilane highway on Sunday, snarling traffic for hours during the morning rush hour, but injuring no one, a transportation official said.
