A 23-year-old migrant worker who fell from a high rise in Shenyang, Liaoning province, kept shouting to people to stay away as he fell.

The young worker, from Jilin province, was standing on the sixth floor unloading bags of sand from a hoist when the arm fell off the machine pulling the man to his death.

Passers-by said that the worker kept warning people to get out of the way as he fell.

Li Zhenge, a local lawyer, said the employer should be responsible for the worker's death.
