A seventh victim has been found after a landslide struck a construction site in Penang, Malaysia on Friday.
The landslide was reported to have occurred at 1:56 p.m MYT Friday at the container and Kongsi area at the Bukit Kukus paired road construction site.
The tragedy occurred after heavy rain in the state from Thursday afternoon until noon the following day.
Water flow from a stream on the hilly area has been identified as one of the causes of the landslide, however some are still debating if the landslide was caused by weather or an unsecured construction site.
