Yeah it's like the formwork was blowing and falling out but they kept pumping the concrete in regardless.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Two dead in building site accident
Two construction workers died and five others were seriously injured after concrete frames gave way and fell from the 23rd floor of the Mekong View Tower 6 Construction site in Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changva district on Sunday.

The accident occurred at about 2.30am at the site in Chroy Changva commune.

District police officer Sok Vibol identified the two deceased workers as Ban Loash, 48, from Kampong Cham province’s Koh Sotin district, and Neam Hing, 38, from Kandal province’s Loeuk Dek district.

Mr Vibol said that ten workers were pouring cement into the concrete frames when they gave way.

“In the process, the frames broke and fell on the victims,” he said. “Two of them were killed instantly, while the other five, who were stuck by the frames, were rescued by police.”
