Three workers die on Malaysian transport site
Concrete span falls onto Bangladeshi workers at MRT Corp project site
The workers were buried after a 490 tonne concrete span fell from the site at the project, which is an ongoing initiative to build a new mass rapid transit system across the Klang Valley - one of Malaysia's most densely-populated areas that includes the capital, Kuala Lumpur.
The report said the slab at the site in Kota Damansara fell last night, and that bodies of the three workers found since have been removed from the site to be taken to a local hospital for a postmortem.
Malaysia's prime minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, has called for an investigation into the incident. Meanwhile, the chief executive of the MRT Corp organisation overseeing the project, Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid, has resigned from his post following the incident.
