A site worker was killed and another injured when a partially completed building, in the compound of the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) in the northern province of Phitsanuloke, collapsed in this morning (Friday).

The Phitsanuloke rescue radio centre said that emergency services rushed to the construction site in Samo Khae sub-district.

When the EMTs arrived at the scene they were told that one injured person had already been taken to Wang Thong district hospital, but another was still missing and was believed to be buried under the collapsed concrete slabs.

The emergency services sifted through the fallen debris and found the missing worker lying face down. He had already expired. The remains were sent to the district hospital for an autopsy.

The cause of the accident is being investigated.
