City mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan said that Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) had taken immediate action following the incident on Friday (Dec 13) night.

“The stop work order will be in effect until DOSH issues a complete report of the incident, ” he said.

He added that a notice under Section 70B (5)(a) of the Road, Drainage and Building Act 1974 was also issued for failure to maintain safety or public property while carrying out construction work.

The fallen crawler crane at a nearby construction site caused injuries to three people, including a three-month-old infant and damaged a squatter house and two shops on Jalan 2/48A in Bandar Baru Sentul.
