Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon and Melaka Chief Minister, Datuk Sulaiman Md Ali also visited the area to oversee the damage.
Rescue teams including the fire department and PDRM were gathered around the area to keep the children safe.
As of now, the authorities are still trying to identify the exact number of casualties and affected areas. The situation around the school is now calm and under control, after parents came to pick up their children.
We hope the injured children have a speedy recovery and their schools will be rebuilt soon to ensure the schooling session will return to normal!
