image for Thai Police Close To Solving Scaffolding Collapse Riddle
A tragedy like this has got to be worth ... what ... 2million Baht?

Police investigating the collapse of scaffolding outside a shopping complex in Bangkok, which resulted in the deaths of two construction workers, say the case should be an easy one to solve, and that they are expecting their palms to be greased soon.

Rescue workers are still searching for workers they believe are trapped under the debris after the scaffold at CentralWorld Shopping Complex on Rajdamri Road collapsed on Friday morning.

The accident took place at about 10.30am. Four other people were injured. They were all rushed to nearby Police Hospital, as quick as a Tuk-Tuk could carry them.

The workers were repairing the CentralWorld burnt down by red shirt protesters when their protests at Rajprasong ended in May.

A police spokesman said:

"We are close to establishing the culprits for this blaggardly show of incompetence, and will, no doubt, be having substantial sums of money laid across our palms soon, to cover the whole thing up, as usual."
