A glass ceiling caved in at a construction site located on the premises of the Perth university on Tuesday. Firefighters and paramedics are at the scene and have begun to look for victims.

At least one person was killed in the collapse, with several others reportedly injured, one critically, local media reported. An ambulance service confirmed that it had transported two men in their 20s who sustained “multiple injuries” to a nearby hospital.
