Multimillion-ringgit Hotel/Shopping Centre structure collapses in Sarawak

Nine foreign workers were injured after part of the building structure of a multimillion-ringgit international hotel-cum-shopping mall project at Jalan Bukit Mata here collapsed.

The workers, one of whom sustained a broken arm, were thrown to the ground when the structure they were standing on gave way at 4pm on Saturday.

Ambulances rushed the injured workers to the Sarawak General Hospital where most of them were given outpatient treatment for cuts and bruises on their bodies.

An eye-witness said the structure collapsed as the workers were pouring mixed concrete on part of the first floor of the building.

The cause of the incident is being investigated by the relevant authorities.

Some 25 workers, most of them foreigners and aged between 25 and 35, were working on the project when the incident occurred.
