KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 — Four Bangladeshi workers were hurt when the steel beam scaffolding of the MRT 3 bridge that is under construction near the Premier Hotel in Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang gave way earlier today.

One worker is still trapped underneath the rubble.

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department director Norazam Khamis said a call for help came in at 2.41pm.

Rescuers from both the Shah Alam and Port Klang Fire and Rescue stations reached the location at 2.58pm.

“So far, four Bangladeshi nationals have been freed and one victim is still buried underneath the fallen steel scaffolding and the fire department is still working to remove the victim,” Norazam said in a statement.

He added that the head of the Andalas Fire Department, the Selangor operation deputy director and officers from the state operation division are also present at the site of the incident.

Pictures and videos of the collapsed bridge structure have been shared on social media.

This is the fourth infrastructure collapse incident this year.

The Damansara-Shah Alam Evelated Highway (DASH) collapsed on June 19, LRT 3 near Meru, Klang on June 17, Sungai Besi- Ulu Kelang Elevated Highway (SUKE) on March 3 and Tenaga Nasional Berhad scaffolding near MRT Cochrane collapsed on January 9.

  1. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the
    exact same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!
