Two Indonesian workers were crushed to death when a slab of wet cement floor collapsed on them at a supermarket construction site at Taman Gaya, Ulu Tiram here. Known only as Asmawi, 27, and Aripen, 24, they were working on a cracked cemented floor at about 3.30pm on Saturday when tragedy struck. Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaacob said the site supervisor had instructed the two workers to repair a cracked beam on the first floor of the building. “While repairing the crack, the wet concrete ceiling above the beam collapsed on top of them,” he said, adding that they died at the scene of the incident.
