Authorities investigate fatal accident on Princess Noura bint Abdul Rahman University site
Saudi Arabian Authorities are investigating the deaths of three construction workers following the collapse of a section of scaffolding on the Princess Noura bint Abdul Rahman University worksite, east of Riyadh.
A further 11 were injured in the incident, which happened last month.
Work at the construction site was stopped until investigations were completed, First Lt. Muhammad Al-Hubail, deputy spokesman for the Civil Defense in the Riyadh province, told journalists from local newspaper Arab News.
“We are now trying to find out the reasons for the collapse of the scaffolding at the Princess Noura bint Abdul Rahman University construction site, causing deaths and injuries,” he told the paper, but refused to speculate on the cause of the collapse.
