SUKE incident: U-Beam stabilisation work completed

KUALA LUMPUR (March 24): Works to stabilise the U-Beam structure at the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE) construction site in Cheras were completed at about 9pm on Tuesday.

Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department assistant director (operations) Khairul Azuwan Ibrahim said currently work was underway to lower two winches, which would take three hours.

“Once the work is completed, the process of extricating the victim's body will be done," he said in a statement last night.

On Monday, three Chinese nationals were crushed to death, while a motorist was seriously injured, when the gantry crane toppled over at the SUKE construction site near Puncak Banyan, Persiaran Alam Damai in Cheras here.

The three victims were identified as Ding Kunfu, Jiang Jinboa and Mu Tong Zheng whose body has yet to be retrieved.

Meanwhile, the Perodua Bezza car driver, a local man, was brought to the Canselor Tuanku Muhriz Hospital for treatment.
