Crane collapse: At least 2 dead and 3 seriously injured at National Art Gallery site
At least two construction workers were killed and another three seriously injured after an accident on Monday morning at the worksite for the future National Art Gallery Singapore on Supreme Court Lane.
According to workers, the crane collapsed at 10.50am along with its concrete counterbalance weights, partially crushing scaffolding within the worksite. The site’s main contractor is Takenaka.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that of the two men who were pronounced dead on arrival, one was trapped at a five-storey height in the scaffolding and had to be hoisted down using rescue ropes.
Around two months ago, the jib of a crawler crane snapped and landed at the same construction site.
