A video of a building partly breaking apart and crashing down has gone viral online.

The 18-second clip shows a high-rise breaking apart from the front and crashing down on the ground below.

The video was shared by several Chinese social media organisations, which suggested that it was a severe accident that had resulted in several injuries.

However, the video is that of a controlled demolition, and there have been no injuries at all, People's Daily China later said.
