Scaffolding collapse in Phuket kills 1, hurts 8

One person was killed and at least eight others injured when the scaffolding of a condominium project crumbled to the ground on Sunday.

Police at the Chalong station reported the collapse of the scaffolding at the construction site in tambon Rawai in Muang district at 2.15pm.

Pol Lt Jaruwit Khuncharoen, a station deputy superintendent, said the workers were Myanmar nationals.

One of them died and eight were injured, he said, with the casualties sent to Vachira Phuket Hospital, Dibuk Hospital, and Chalong Hospital.

The officer said two workers are trapped under the debris.

The scaffolding collapsed at the construction site of the VIP Rawai Condominium project.

An initial investigation found the scaffolding may not have been able to bear the increased weight after workers poured cement on the steel structure
