The headline seems to imply that the injured workers collapsed inside the building. But newspaper editors aren't hired for their English skills, are they?

I hope the workers recover quickly. This type of disaster occurs too often here. How can anyone trust the integrity of any structure in Thailand?

I say this every time there is an incident like this , Until there is legislation to make Killing or injuring people at work more expensive to the construction company than finishing the work on time , this will continue to happen. These foreign workers and the families of the ones who die in these "Incidents" will be given a minor back hander to keep quiet. Normally the families depend on Money sent back by the worker who has been killed or injured so they take the money. This happens everywhere in Asia . Ive seen it happen a few times in Taiwan and Malaysia, so called advanced Asian nation's .

Yet another construction failure. This seems to becoming a very common occurance. I have to assume there are no building codes, or if there are, no enforcement (big surprise).

One big problem that I have seen, is the total lack of skilled and properly trained construction workers.

When will Thailand ever learn and join the real world.

"Police are investigating the accident"....case closed!

Often, the only thing that is closed, are the minds of those with preset dispositions.

I am not the all-knowing center of the universe.

The first paragraph could be directed to the news paper that printed the story.

It may be a small contribution in helping to improve their English skills and would be more constructive than sharing it with TVF.

Just look at the far right corner pylon/post/support, it is far thinner than the horizontal above it, it has the weight of front side and side of structure.

I do not have much Idea, BUT at least have your corners strong enough to support the bulk.

Well OK, but how about some blame / most of the blame on the architect or the assigned building engineer or the on site foreman?

Local government inspection on site to se the supports are as per regulations. Mind you the local government officer in charge could have been/is a fishing fleet owner, as he will need this experience to oversee the construction. These officers--government at most levels are there because of money, not experience in the said field they should oversee.
