The bodies of all seven workers trapped in the rubble of the collapsed Jaya Supermarket building here have been recovered.
The last three were pulled out yesterday, said Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed.
However, the final two bodies could not be identified as they were badly crushed. Police will wait for the Indonesian Embassy to help with possible DNA identification, he said.
With the recovery of the seven bodies, the search and recovery operation ended at 5pm.
On Thursday, the five-storey portion of the supermarket building collapsed right to the basement, where the car park was located, during demolition work. - Star, 31/5/2009, Bodies of all seven trapped workers found
Fingerprints...and Dental Records - that is how identification is made when bodies are crushed beyond identification.
But, again ...surely you know the name of your workers that are missing. I wonder also why the name of the employer of these workers that have been killed are being kept 'secret'.
I worry whether their family/dependents will get their Workmen's Compensation money of maximum RM18,000 (plus the additional compulsory insurance payment of RM7,000)
Or, will there by no pay-out...? I wonder whether the employer registered these workers for Workmen's Compensation, or purchased the requisite for the said workers...
Is the employer being investigated? Was he negligent in not providing the required safety levels and conditions, as required by law. Did the workers have the required safety clothing...equipment?
