Denying rumors, IDX spokesman says no collapse at building
The Jakarta Post
Several pictures and videos showing holes in the ceiling and water on the floor of the lobby of the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) building went viral on social media on Thursday afternoon.
However, IDX spokesman Oskar Herliansyah told kompas.com that the images showed maintenance work and not an accident. “Nothing has collapsed in our building,” he said.
Oskar went on to explain that the building's management had intentionally opened several parts of ceiling to repair a pipeline.
“Nothing collapsed. We’re repairing a pipe inside the ceiling and it’s almost finished,” he said.
On Jan. 15, a mezzanine at the IDX building collapsed in the building’s lobby. At least 72 people suffered injuries as a result of the incident, which occurred during lunch time. (vla)
