The pair have been sent to hospital for treatment
Two Bangladeshi workers were seriously injured in Malaysia after a concrete wall collapsed on them while they were carrying out renovation work at a private college lobby on Sunday.
Azmi Tahar, Penang Fire and Rescue Department operations officer, said one of the victims, Moshak, 42, suffered serious facial injuries and his right palm was crushed while his co-worker Abdul Mannan, 40, was seriously injured in the legs and abdomen, reports The Star citing Bernama.
"We were alerted to the incident at about 5pm and upon arrival at the site, we found the two men trapped under the rubble. We had to remove the concrete heap before the victims could be brought to safety," Azmi said on Sunday.
The pair have been sent to hospital for treatment.
A preliminary investigation showed that the two workers were in the midst of demolishing the wall when it gave way, collapsing on them.
"Earlier several other workers tried to extricate them but the concrete pieces were too heavy,” Azmi added.
