Date: 11, 12, 1993.  Time: 11.30am +/-
Highland Towers got 12 years history, without any warning, "Block A" collapse with no reason. With the fall of Block A, people who staying in Block B and C need to evacuate and move out immediately. Rescue team discover 48 dead bodies cum with 30bags of human flesh.
Inside the tower, some people discover that there is many rice box contain foods for the prayers to the lost soul. Most the the food eaten by stray dogs, and Block B & C entrance got the container for burning hell note. To get the prove, newspaper reporter ready to go pay a "visit", luckily that day they went is raining and the atmosphere is darker than normal day. Block B & C is being abandon for long time and it becomes more creepy and ever.
(I hope you get the meaning of it, translated from the video link below)

Before I post my opinion over here, I would like to pray for the victims.

I was wondering, what is so special about Highland Towers. Because I see people from forum listed this place as one of the famous HAUNTED place that must visit. I thought Highland Towers it is just a tower, it is actually 2 apartments which is haven't collapse yet ever since the "Block A" collapse without any warning. And I thought Highland Towers is at Genting Highland, silly me . . .

Not only this incident happen on Highland Towers (I strongly believe that the cause of Highland Towers collapse is relate towards landslide + the land is not firm enough to handle the BALANCE of Highland Towers), there is few landslide happening on year 1999, 2002, 2006 and year 2008! Feel free to read her post and understand more about.

People who with weak heart but really wanted to visit this place, I suggest you to read more article about haunted location via online, don't risk your own life.

Thanks for reading, by Kian Fai.

  3. Ooh Highland Towers in Ulu Klang? Definitely haunted since so many people died from the landslide that toppled Block 1. Made big international news when it occurred last time.

  4. I heard that the building was solidly built using good materials so when it toppled, it was hard for the rescuers to drill and get through the concrete blocks to reach the buried victims. It was said that rescuers could hear knocking and voices crying for help up to 1 week after the collapse. Scary.

  5. Among the victims were the son of former Deputy PM, Datuk Musa Hitam and his (the son's) wife.

  6. All residents in the other blocks were evacuated for safety reasons. I don't think anyone would dare return and stay in there even if it's certified safe cos definitely it would be eerie staying next to a spot where so many died.

  7. Did you know a few years ago, another landslide happened near this Highland Tower? The landslide buried 14 bungalows. Never stay in that area. It's prone to landslide.

  8. I can imagine that if Twitter was available that time, we would be updated with the rescue mission minute by minute on Twitter.

  16. I saw an episode where volunteers actually climbed the still-standing building and shyt happened. Not sure if it's real or fake though. Small Mission Enterprise - new Malaysian English sitcom

  17. I don't think I will be brave enough to pay Highland Towers a visit. I don't want to run into one of the "good brothers" - as the Taiwanese people address them.

    To be honest, I'm not surprised if it's really haunted because of the sad incident and it's been abandoned for far too long now. I agree; the land wasn't strong enough to sustain the weight of the three towers. Hope those who lost their lives in the incident are finally resting in peace.
