KUALA LUMPUR, July 19 — A portion of a public road and the outer wall of an apartment in Taman U Thant here caved in earlier today.
In a report made available to Malay Mail, the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) said its Rescue Squad said the incident took place at the road outside 16 Taman U Thant, which it suspects to have been caused by a burst water pipe.
“A tree and a Telekom cable pole almost collapsed. There is also water flowing at the sunken area,” the report read.
DBKL said the team reached the location at 3.35pm and has since cordoned off the affected area for public safety.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan has asked several utility companies, including Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd, to look into the matter for a remedy.
