Philippines: Portion of Eton Building in QC collapses, no injuries

dzMM reported on Friday morning that a part of the 13-storey Eton Centris Building in Quezon City, near the capital Manila, collapsed leaving no one hurt, quoted by the ABS CBN News.
Mayor Herbert Bautista said that the formwork at the second floor of the said building collapsed.
Cops and rescue teams were immediately sent to the site but were not allowed to enter.
A few weeks ago, 11 workers died when a scaffolding collapsed from the 32nd floor to the seventh floor of a Makati building owned by the Eton Properties Philippines Inc. The project was suspended indefinitely for violations of the labor code.
Radio reports further said that both buildings are owned by the same company but the contractors are different.
