SUBIC BAY FREEPORT, Philippines — Two construction workers died while three others suffered serious injuries when a bridge being constructed along an expressway in this freeport collapsed on Tuesday.

An incident report said Marvin Tajores, 41, a resident of Masinloc, Zambales, and Vicencio Pamisa, 57, a native of Cagayan de Oro, were pinned under metal column beams and a steel girder post, which is 18 meters long and weighs 180 tons.
