Bridge Collapses Near Mid Valley, At Least One Reported To Have Been Killed

Oh, what horror!

A bridge that is still under construction has collapsed at approximately 3.30pm today near Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur. The bridge is built to serve as a pedestrian walkway connecting The Gardens Mall (next to Mid Valley) to KL Eco City, a new development project located in the former Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum village.

There were also rumors that the collapsed structure is the bridge linking Mid Valley to The Gardens, which has been proved to be untrue.

News reports indicate that at least one person has been killed and nine others injured, while it is feared that more may be trapped under the rubble.

In the meantime, motorists are advised to stay away from roads heading to and from Mid Valley such as the Federal Highway and Jalan Bangsar due to the traffic build-up.
