Hyderabad: Four construction workers, including two migrants, sustained injuries when the roof of a complex under construction collapsed at the Yadagirigutta temple in Telangana. Three of them received minor injuries and the mother of a worker, who received severe injuries, has been rushed to Hyderabad for better treatment.
According to sources, the roof was being laid in a small portion of the complex, which was meant for the devotees. As the structure was strong enough, the roof caved in, trapping the workers underneath. Other workers, who were working on the premises, escaped unhurt in the incident.
