  • On the Afternoon of January 19, 1926, during the height of the Man Dragon sightings, the Xiaon Te Dam suffered a massive structural failure and collapsed sending over 40 billion gallons of water crashing into the farming villages below. Several villages were entirely destroyed beneath the massive force of rushing water and when the water finally drained the death toll was estimated to be over 15,000. Although most records and reports of this disaster were destroyed by the ruling communist party, many of the survivors of this horrible disaster did confirm that the Man Dragon not only showed its self above the ill fated dam but also to many of the victims.
