Trio crushed to death by brick wall in Penang storm
BUKIT MERTAJAM: Three Myanmar nationals were among four people killed during a storm in Penang which toppled walls, uprooted trees and blew off zinc sheets.
The foreigners, who were in their 20s and 30s, were crushed to death when a 12m-high brick wall they were building at a factory warehouse at Bukit Minyak Light Industrial Park here collapsed and fell on them.
The wall was believed to have collapsed due to strong winds at about 4.30pm yesterday.
The fourth death occurred in Perak Lane on the island, where an uprooted tree fell on a house and killed Lim Chong Leong, 59, who lived there.
Aftermath: A zinc wall blown off by strong winds at Armenian Street in Penang.
