Singapore Highway Collapses While Under Construction

A partially built elevated highway under construction in Singapore has collapsed, killing one worker and injuring ten others.

The incident which happened in Singapore where construction safety regulations are stringent, was described as rare.

The worker killed was Chinese, the ten injured were made up of Chinese and Bangladeshi nationals.

Reports say 60 emergency officials rushed to the scene of the incident and worked into the early morning to free workers trapped in the rubble.

At the time of the incident all 11 workers involved were working on top of the structure, officials said all workers have been accounted for.

Investigations have been launched into the cause of the collapse.
