Possible legal action over deadly scaffold collapse


Engineers and officials yesterday examine a large metal scaffold that fell from concrete pillars which are part of the State Railway of Thailand’s Dark Red Line project, under construction in Don Muang district.

Three workers were killed in the incident on Friday night. Labour Protection and Welfare Department director-general Sumet Mahosot said the project had seen six deadly incidents during its construction, killing eight people. 
Metropolitan Police chief Lt-General Sanit Mahathaworn said an investigation was under way to determine whether legal action could be taken against anyone found to be responsible.
