Five workers died with two others left in critical condition following an accident in an under-construction septic pit at the Manhattan Square construction site in South Jakarta on Tuesday. The tragedy was the latest in a series of fatal workplace accidents in the city. The police’s preliminary inquiry suggests that the victims appeared to have died after inhaling poisonous fumes inside the pit. Police said that six of the men were trying to help a colleague who had fallen into the pit, which is located in the building’s basement.
