apparently a truckload of reinforcement beams which were to be installed in the worksite came loose from the transport and rolled into the basement construction pit and hitting existing support beam causing a chain-collapse of the support beams. The pit is about 5 level deep.

The MRT tunnel next to the site is not involved.

Lucky came back early from lunch otherwise would be stuck outside.

let's all pray for the missing people and hope they will be rescured soon.
Ditto... As much as we do not wish to see such accidents from happening, we should be thankful that we do have a pretty capable SCDF (as compared to the stadard they were in during the collapse of Hotel New World) which I'm confident of doing a good job again... Let's also hope for safety and success by our super rescue workers...
