Five construction workers were injured when a portion of a scaffolding of Cleo County, an under-construction high rise in sector-121 of Noida fell on them while they were working on Tuesday morning. The incident, which could be a case of negligence, left one worker critically injured while others escaped with minor injuries.

Police said the cause of the incident is still unknown but the scaffolding collapsed from the 2nd floor of the building. No complaint has been received so far, police said.

According to the police, the victims have been identified as Majai Sheikh(30), Mahijul Alam, Vinod Rishi, Abdul Sattar and Raju. Sheikh was earlier admitted to Shivalik Hospital with severe head injuries while others are admitted to Om Hospital.

"The scaffolding was not installed properly and the incident took place at around 10:30 am. The scaffolding fell suddenly and few people got injured. The incident occurred during the ongoing construction work at the project site," said Manoj, a worker.

According to the fellow labourers, the builder is taking care of all the expenses and Sheikh has been shifted to Avantika Hospital in Indirapuram for further treatment.

"We are at least thankful that the builder is taking care of all the expenses. Shivalik Hospital did not have X-Ray machine due to which they have moved him to Avantika Hospital for the further treatment," said Manoj.

Vijay Sharma, site engineer of the project said all the labourers involved in the work were fully equipped with mandatory safety equipment like harnesses and helmets.

"Prima facie it seems like a case of human error by one of the labourers who subconsciously ended up putting weight on the scaffolding which had already been unlocked due to ongoing dismantling process," said Sharma.

"The exact cause of the incident is still unknown but the scaffolding collapse from the 2nd floor of the building. We have not yet received any complaint so far," said Amit Kumar Singh, Station House officer of Phase-3 police station.
