PETALING JAYA (Feb 25): A section of a luxury condominium project under construction in Mont’Kiara, Kuala Lumpur gave way yesterday afternoon. No one was hurt in the incident.

Pictures of the portion that collapsed were shared on social media. 

The project under construction is a joint venture between MKH Bhd and Fairview Group.

In a statement posted on its Facebook page yesterday, MKH said the incident involved a “small section of the supporting scaffolding which gave way during construction.

“All workers are safe and the incident has been reported to the relevant authorities.
