"I'm a mess and I always think life is too short and I'm so stupid, I should have just told you on the weekend how much I have fallen in love with you and I don't know what I will do without you in my life". "Then I was meditating and I could hear all the sirens", she said.

A vehicle being used by the construction team is also understood to have been destroyed by the collapse.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported that the collapse happened while a glass roof was being installed.

Curtin University said in a statement no staff or students had been affected by the accident.
