Landslide in Phuket kills a Myanmar worker, injures 2
One Myanmar worker was killed and two other colleagues were injured in a landslide at a construction site near Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket on Wednesday (Feb 21). Phuket police said they were alerted of the fatal incident at 10.30am at the construction site of a 3-storey building which is behind a 4-metre high hill near Gate 3 of the hospital. They rushed to the scene along with rescue workers of the Kusoltham Phuket charity foundation and medical team from the hospital. Three workers were buried with one of them covered with soil up to his neck. He was immediately excavated and another colleague saved in time before both were rushed to hospital. They were identified as Jo We Nai and Ne Sor Lin, both about 20 years old. But a third worker who was buried underneath didn’t breathe after being excavated by rescuers. He was already dead and later identified as 37-year-old Miw Ta Taw. Site engineer Narongrit Poompaung said the workers were levelling the land at the site when the accident occurred. Police said the area where the workers were buried by the landslide was beside a section of soil excavated, leaving a three-metre high earth wall that was not restrained by any structure. He said investigators were investigating other details. But he said work at the site was immediately ordered to halt until a safety plan has been presented to and approved by the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Phuket office and Phuket City Municipality.
