One of the three stone pagodas on the famous West Lake in east China’s Zhejiang Province was put back in position on Tuesday, after it was knocked into the lake in a collision with a sightseeing boat on Monday evening.
The fallen pagoda was salvaged at 06:00 Tuesday and administrative staff at the scenic spot put it back in its rightful position shortly afterward.
The accident was caused by an error from the driver of the boat, which crashed through a set of steel rails and collided with the right side of the pagoda, according to administrative staff at the West Lake.
Some 36 tourists were on the medium-sized boat when the collision took place.
The company that owns the boat is asked o stop service temporarily and an investigation into the accident will be conducted.
The three stone pagodas were listed as a national culture relic in May.
