Photos: Penang Second Bridge Ramp Collapsed, 1 Dead, 3 Injured
The ramp to the Penang Second Bridge which is still under construction collapsed yesterday evening at about 7:15pm at Lebuhraya Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu in Batu Maung, Penang.
At least one person was killed and three others were injured in the incident.
It is reported that a search camera has detected an unmoving arm in a white Perodua Kelisa lying crushed under tons of concrete and steel.
Berita Harian said that it took a long time to pull out the victim in the Kelisa because the car was trapped under steels and concrete that was estimated to weigh about 300 ton so it needed special machineries and proper plans as not to cause more disaster.
It was reported that the rescuers may be able to free the body this evening.
The Star reported that, “the car plate number with some digits missing is ‘PF?347?’ “
The authorities are still investigating the cause of the disaster.
I am sad and sorry for the victims, their families and friends.
