Sultan Mizan Stadium in Terengganu was all over the news on June 2, 2009. It was then that massive steel roof over half of the stands collapsed, being destroyed completely. Thankfully, as the catastrophe took place in the morning, there was no-one inside, so only a few cars parked outside were destroyed.

There were no injuries, but decision on the venue’s future hadn’t been made for a long time. The steel debris was cleaned up, while dismantling of the roof over second part of the stadium started in recent weeks.

This is where a second collapse took place today in the morning. already without metal sheet, the steel trusses bent down, falling onto several workers. Five people were rescued from under the rubble, they have minor injuries.
