TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Four men and a woman died at the Da-Si Senior High School
in Taoyuan City when the scaffolding they were working on collapsed, reports said Wednesday.
The reason for the incident was not immediately clear.
The five had been working on the outside of the fifth floor at the school building, and at 3:14 p.m. the scaffolding collapsed, burying them underneath.
As they were pulled out of the wreckage over the following two-and-a-half hours, all of them were officially diagnosed with “out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA)” and were pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital. [FULL STORY]
