A young construction was killed on Tuesday (17 Sept) after a steel plate fell on him at a Hougang condominium worksite. The 25-year-old migrant worker, who is from Bangladesh, was working at The Florence Residences worksite in Hougang Avenue 2 when the plate fell and pinned him underneath.
A video circulating online shows fellow workers trying to free the trapped man by using an excavator to lift the steel plate off of him.
The condominium project, which involves the construction of nine 18-storey residential buildings by March 2022, is developed by Florence Developer and occupied by Tiong Aik Construction. The deceased worker was employed by Dsoon Engineering.
The Ministry of Manpower (MOM), which is investigating the incident, reported that it issued a stop order on the use and movement of all heavy machinery at the construction site after the accident occurred. -/TISG
