Crane collapses at Bandar Damansara Perdana construction site


PETALING JAYA: A crane has collapsed at a Bandar Damansara Perdana construction site on Monday.

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department assistant director (operations) Mohd Sani Harul confirmed the incident, saying that the accident happened at a construction site located in front of the LHDN building at Empire Bandar Damansara Perdana.

He added that the department received the call at about 2pm.

“Five personnel were dispatched to the scene. No one was injured during the incident,” said Mohd Sani.

Earlier, an image of an overturned crane at a construction site in Damansara has been posted up on social media by a motorist.

"I was near the PJ Trade Centre. This was opposite the Trade Centre, across the highway. I believe that this is a new development," he said when contacted.

He verified that the image is real and said that he took the photo at about 2pm on Monday.

The image posted by the motorist shows a crane hanging upside down on a high-rise building, and it appears to be attached to the back of a trailer.

"Just moments ago, this crane overturned and is dangling precariously on the ledge of Empire Development. Doesn't look like anyone was in it, but no idea if anyone got hurt. Yet another example of construction mishaps," he wrote in the post.
