Three construction workers killed after elevator mishap

Recommended Posts

The bodies of three construction workers were pulled out from the rubble of an elevator shaft in the capital yesterday after the workers plummeted 16-storeys on Saturday. Phan Kong, a construction worker at the site, yesterday said all three men were his colleagues at the 21-storey apartment building being constructed in Daun Penh district’s Srah Chak commune.

 

Mr Kong said that on Sunday night, construction workers opened the door to an elevator shaft due to a bad smell and discovered a leg buried beneath rubble. The discovery prompted the workers to call the district and commune police. Yesterday morning, dozens of police were seen entering and exiting the site after taking hours to inspect it before pulling the bodies of the victims out of the rubble.

 

The three victims identified as 21-year-old Sok Sambath, 35-year-old Yem Tin and 31-year-old Thim Thirong. The bodies of all three were returned to their families yesterday. Mr Kong said workers at the site suspect that all three victims died after falling 16-storey safter their scaffolding collapsed during the installation of an elevator.

I live in a country just as hot as Thailand and Saturday to Sunday you would not be searching just from the smell not long enough, be more to this story.
