Thiruvananthapuram, March 31 (IANS) One worker was killed and nearly 30 others were injured Tuesday when the roof of a building under construction came crashing down at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) campus in the Kerala capital.
Eight of the injured are in a serious condition. The accident took place when a portion of the roof of the new five-storey building gave way, an ISRO official said.
“The building was to be used to assemble rockets,” the official said. “Construction work was going on and hence there were several workers. Rescue operations are on.”
The ISRO campus is also known as the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre.
