Thai hospital under construction collapses, killing at least 11

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A hospital under construction just east of Bangkok's main airport collapsed on Tuesday (February 25), killing at least 11 people and injuring 16, police said. The superintendent of Bang Phli police station in Samut Prakarn province, Korawat Hanpradit, said 11 construction workers had been killed in the incident. Some of the injured were in critical condition, hospital sources said. Emergency workers were checking for survivors who may still be trapped under the rubble at the construction site 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport. Rights groups have criticised Thailand's lax worker safety records, particularly in regard to migrants from neighbouring Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar, who make up around five percent of the country's workforce.
