Woman dies in fall at Foxconn plant in China

BEIJING (AFP) – A young woman intern fell to her death from a dormitory at a Foxconn plant in China, state media reported on Sunday, the latest in a string of fatalities involving the technology giant’s workers.

The woman slipped and fell from the sixth floor while trying to hang her laundry outside a window at the complex in the central city of Zhengzhou, Xinhua news agency said, quoting local authorities.

Foxconn, which is the largest maker of computer components and assembles products for Apple, including the iPhone, Sony and Nokia, has come under the spotlight after suicides and labour unrest at its massive Chinese plants.

A 21-year-old employee of the Taiwanese firm jumped to his death in July in the southern city of Shenzhen.
