Two construction workers were confirmed dead when a portion of a condominium building under construction at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City collapsed Wednesday morning, February 4.
The fatalities were identified as Renato dela Cruz and Ruben Raqraquiam.
The casualties reportedly died when formworks gave way during the concrete pouring in one of the floors, according to the Fort Bonifacio Development Corp. (FBDC), project developer of the construction site.
The incident also injured 11 people identified as Sandy Vargas, Jaymar Carberta, Regan Labmutin, Larry Magguray, Wendil Behim, Aldrin Gahuman, Roberto Lorca, Darwin Avara, Bernard Tugade, Jonathan Agoso, Delinger Abara.
Taguig Police chief Senior Superintendent Arthur Felix Asis said that the injured workers suffered abrasions and fractures on their hands.
They were brought to St. Luke’s Global hospital.
The building is a 63-residential tower, a project of Ayala Land Premier, located at the corner of 5th Avenue and 28th Street at Bonifacio Global City.
Representatives of the Department of Labor and Employment and the building inspectors of the Taguig City government will conduct separate investigations on the incident.
