A pedestrian bridge under construction near Mid Valley Megamall on Jalan Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum has collapsed, killing at least two people.

According to The Star Online, four others were injured in the incident which happened around 3.30pm.

Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department chief operations officer Samsol Maarif Saibani said the department was alerted about the incident at 3.33pm.

Fire and rescue personnel from the Pantai, Hang Tuah and Seputeh fire stations have been dispatched to the scene.

The bridge was supposed to link KL Eco City, which is also under construction, to The Gardens shopping centre.

It is part of a planned construction to integrate the Abdullah Hukum LRT and the soon-to-be completed Eco City KTM, with both KL Eco City and The Gardens and Mid Valley shopping complex.

Meanwhile, newswire Bernama uploaded a video depicting construction workers crowding around what looked like a police vehicle.

Some were holding on to the truck and weeping.

"Construction workers weep over their friend who perished when a building structure collapsed on Jalan Bangsar," Bernama reported on Twitter.
