Tragedy at Construction Site: One Worker was Killed and Three Injured by a Collapsed Wall in South Tangerang

One of four workers suffered a tragic death, and three others sustained injuries in a work accident on the outskirts of Kali Serua, Pondok Aren, South Tangerang, on Friday (6/10/2023) at around 10.30 WIB. The Pondok Aren Sector Police identified the worker who died as Suherman (39), while Rahmat (45), Hamzah (35), and Jainal Arip (33) suffered injuries and were treated at the Bakti Asih Ciledug hospital.

The four workers were involved in the Serua River normalization project, assembling iron for chicken claws as a cast foundation on the river’s edge. The accident occurred when another worker was digging the river with an excavator, which caused vibrations that are thought to have caused the wall to collapse and hit the workers below.

Initial investigations showed that the victims did not use personal protective equipment (PPE) during the accident, so their work safety was neglected.

Pondok Aren Police Chief, Commissioner Bambang Askar Sodiq, revealed that the police had asked for information from three witnesses who saw the incident. Examining the surviving workers will be carried out this week. Information and data will be collected before being forwarded to the party responsible for the normalization project.

Even though there were rumors about the arrest of the project leader, Bambang Askar Sodiq denied this, but the police had secured the excavator.

The contractor implementing the sheet pile construction project in Pondok Kacang Timur claims that his workers are now using PPE, especially project helmets, to prevent a similar incident. However, the South Tangerang City Water Resources Service will determine whether the PPE used meets Indonesian national standards (SNI).

The South Tangerang City Water Resources, Highways and Construction Department (SDABMBK) stated that the Serua River normalization project had been temporarily stopped because the police were investigating it.

Electric short circuit triggers huge fire at Kosambi market, which traders successfully extinguish

A major fire occurred at Kosambi Market, Bandung City, West Java, on Monday (9/10/2023), which was caused by an electrical short circuit in two stalls behind the market building. This incident occurred at around 09.00 WIB and involved two kiosks measuring three by four meters.

The owner of one of the stalls, Agus, said that he and his wife were cleaning the stall when the incident occurred. They heard a pop from the electricity meter installed in the kiosk.
