Beijing (AP) — Chinese county officials appear to have died suddenly last month when 21 runners investigated the deaths of a mountain competing in an ultramarathon when it was hit by glaze and strong winds.

Police have been notified that the Communist Party secretary in Jingtai County, western China, has jumped from his apartment and died, according to CCTV, a state-run television.

On Friday, the state government punished 27 officials for the death of Lanna.

by Associated PressAfter his death, the Gansu provincial government exempted Jingtai County Communist Party Secretary, but dismissed his deputy.

AP reported that two subordinates were detained while waiting for an investigation, while others were subject to administrative sanctions, demotions, warnings, and disadvantages.

A state-issued report found that there was a lack of proper planning for the event and that it could not respond effectively if the weather conditions deteriorated significantly during the race on May 22nd.

The report stated that the Organizing Committee was guilty of being “overly formal and bureaucratic,” the AP reported.

One runner who quit the race Said No one was dressed like winter. Many of them wore short-sleeved tops.
