In a statement, the MRT Corp said Rijaul Abdul Goni, 40, died on the spot while his compatriot identified as Shanaullah, 37, has been sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
It said a third worker identified as Rozlu Karim escaped injury.
He said work has been suspended at the Semantan site.
The work at the Semantan site is contracted to Sunway Construction.
In the incident, the workers were assembling a rebar cage, when the tes that held the rebars gave way and fell on them.
Police and forensics are at the site and investigations have commenced to determine the cause of incident.
Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department assistant operations director Azizan Ismail said the department received a call from the public at 3pm alerting them on the incident.
Azizan said the initial information received stated that the incident occurred at 1.20pm.
“We are puzzled as to why they (MRT Corp) did not alert us on the incident earlier,” said Azizan.
This is the second time in under six months, that the MRT project site has been hit by a fatal accident.
Last August, MRT Corp’s then chief executive Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid quit his post after an accident at its Kota Damansara site took the lives of three Bangladeshi workers.
But the company rejected Azhar’s resignation letter.
Much earlier, a motorist’s sedan was crushed when a metal slab fell on it at the MRT site in Pusat Bandar Damansara. There were no casualties in that incident.
