Last month, a construction worker was killed when the floor collapsed in a multistorey building under construction in Taman Teknologi Subang Hi-Tech, Shah Alam. The victim, whose name was only reported as “Kassim”, crashed 14m down, along with steel reinforcement rods and the cement mixture.

He was extricated out of the rubble four hours later, dead.
