At least one labourer was killed, while seven others sustained serious injuries after the shuttering (temporary fixtures)of the under-construction building in Noida Sector 94 collapsed on Sunday morning, sources said.
The Police rushed to the spot and rescued people trapped under the iron grills. The body of one of the labourers was pulled out by the police and the injured people were taken to a nearby hospital.
"One man, who was driving the tractor, died after the fixtures came crashing down on him, while six others suffered injuries and are hospitalised," PTI quoted Amit Kumar Singh, SHO of the Sector 39 police station, under whose jurisdiction the building is located, as saying.
The incident occurred at the BPTP 'Capital City' in the morning when a tractor-trolley carrying sand reportedly hit the shuttering bringing down six labourers who were working a few floors above the ground, they said.
