September 8, 2022 By The Straits Times
Three men were killed and six others injured after a Hong Kong crane collapsed at a construction site on Wednesday with rescuers trying for hours in vain to reach a victim trapped under the wreckage.
One man was certified dead at the site in Kowloon after suffering a skull fracture while another died after being rushed to hospital, authorities said, as dozen of workers from the city’s Urban Search and Rescue Team worked around the crumpled tower crane, which had fallen onto multiple cargo containers used as temporary offices, trying to retrieve a third victim.
Police later confirmed that the man was also killed.
