A serious accident occurred yesterday at the Novena Ville site along Thomson Road, which is being redeveloped by Fragrance Group into a four-storey residential and commercial property called Novena Regency. 
A Chinese Singaporean in his 50s was killed when the excavator he was operating toppled on its side after it went over a hollow void at the construction site.
The deceased worker has been identified as Loh Chin Nam. According to his cousin, 57-year old construction manager Loh Chin Seng, the victim had worked in the construction industry for over 40 years and was married with children. He was also the sole bread winner in his family.
