Right in the midst of enhanced workplace safety enforcement efforts, a worker was killed in a construction site mishap along Mandalay Road.
Channel NewsAsia reports one worker died while another was injured this afternoon at the section of the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine campus that was under construction. How the man perished was unclear, with some saying that he fell from height, while others mentioned that a gondola fell.
The injured worker has since been sent to hospital for treatment, while the site itself was evacuated following the incident.
