Ringo | On 11, Nov 2017
Two construction workers died after the fifth floor of a construction site fell.
On Saturday, the construction workers, who were about to enter the area, were shocked after materials from the fifth floor fell. Unfortunately, two of their colleagues were already inside. They both shed lives.
Based on the investigation, one of the beams of the fifth floor broke and continued to shatter from its scaffolding.
Ayala Land Inc., the owner of the said construction site, vowed to help the families of the victims.
“Both companies are also working with local government officials to determine the cause of the incident,” said Therese Borromeo, the branch manager of Ayala Land Inc.
“Importante that families of the workers have been taken good care of. I think that’s the crucial thing we can do right now,” Borromeo added.
The clearing operations are now ongoing.
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will also conduct its own investigation.
