Johannesburg - Three workers were injured, one of them critically, when three walls of a building under construction collapsed in Melrose in Johannesburg on Friday, emergency services said.

A roof caved in on the three men when the walls collapsed on Friday morning, said spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi.

The critically injured man was taken to hospital and the other two received treatment on the scene for minor injuries.

      If he's proven guilty of wrong doing, yes.

    No reason for collapse given. Hope they make a full recovery and find the cause.

    There are so many of the wall collapses in the last year. It really sucks to be a construction worker these days. Hope they recover soon.

    Knowing this country they'll probably lock the engineer up and throw the key away. but if your in politics and you do something bad you get an increase and a slap on the wrist.
