Work shut down at site of fatal construction accident

The Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction yesterday suspended construction of a building in Chamkarmon district, Phnom Penh after three workers were killed and one seriously injured in a workplace accident.

The men fell from the fourth floor of the building on Wednesday when the cable of a lift they were using snapped. According a statement from the ministry, the lift was designed to hoist building materials not people.

The development and its owners Ung Chun Keng and Mak Somaly will be investigated to determine whether further action should be taken, the statement noted. A district police officer told the Post one of the victims was a trader selling coffee at the construction site.
