Chinese Rocket Booster drops from Sky and smashes on top of a Building

On February 12, 2018 we saw the seventh orbital launch of the year by China, with a Long March-3B/YZ-1 orbiting a new pair of navigation satellites. The launch took place just after 05:00 UTC from the LC2 Launch Complex of the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, Sichuan province. It took over four hours to complete the mission.

While American rockets fall into the ocean, China keeps dropping expended rocket boosters on land.

Although, they try to calculate these drop zones very carefully to avoid inhabited areas or in some places they evacuate an area or even a complete town, sometimes these expended rocket boosters come very close to populated areas.

And not surprisingly the Chinese sat launch has again dropped rocket boosters and this time over a populated area in Tianlin county, Guangxi where rocket parts smashed near and on top of a building.

They have evacuated the people before hand, but of course it is crazy that they still drop the rocket boosters over inhabited areas.
