Landslide in Bukit Ceylon

Reported by The Sun, 16 December 2008.

I have a feeling The Sun may have made an error as the Verticas Residensi is not actually located beside St Andrews Church. The project beside St Andrews Church which is on the slopes of Bukit Ceylon is the UMLand-MMC JV which is currently unnamed. Something else serious happened later on February 13th. I have checked the UMland-MMC JV site. Indeed work has stopped.

Contract worker killed in landslide

KUALA LUMPUR: An Indonesian died when he was buried in a landslide in Jalan Ceylon, Persiaran Raja Chulan, here.

In the incident which occurred at about 4pm yesterday, Nur Salim Manan, 48, and another colleague, Imam Rafie, 37, were said to be carrying out drilling work at the construction site for a 43-storey condominium in the area.

“Fourteen personnel and a fire engine were rushed to the scene after a distress call was received at 4.27pm,” Hang Tuah fire and rescue station officer-in-charge Marzuki Shafie told reporters at the scene.

“Nur Salim was completely buried by the landslide while Imam was buried from the waist down.”

Marzuki said Nur Salim died on the spot.

The landslide was believed to have been triggered by drilling works. — Bernama
