FIVE WORKERS HURT IN INDUSTRIAL INCIDENT, WINDOWS SEEM TO HAVE BLOWN OFF

Dear A.S.S. Editor

SCDF said that five workers were injured in an industrial incident at the Enterprise Centre in Bukit Batok on Monday morning. SCDF confirmed that they responded to the industrial incident at 20 Bukit Batok Crescent at about 11 am.

In a subsequent update, the SCDF said the industrial incident resulted in the “partial collapse of a wall and significant damage within the premises”, but no one was trapped in the incident. There was no fire when the SCDF arrived in the incident, and the five injured workers were sent to hospitals for treatment.

Investigations are currently still ongoing, though no details were released on the kind of injuries suffered by the five workers, and indeed, the nature of the industrial incident. However, one eyewitness, Jason Ong, reportedly said that he heard an ‘explosion’, and photos showing the windows of a floor of the building damaged by what may seem like an explosion was taken by him.
