Worker killed when house collapses

NONTHABURI - One man died and three others were injured when a house collapsed in Pakkret district on Wednesday morning, police said.

The men were trying to raise the house and add an extra level below, to deal with flooding, when the collapse occurred.

The mainly wooden building fell on top of the four workers.

Police said later the equipment used to lift the building was not strong enough to support the structure.

Wichai Kamnam, 31, was killed in the accident. Three other workers were slightly injured.
