The Labour Ministry is spearheading an investigation into yet another workplace fatal accident.
A Sophia labourer, who has so far been identified only as “Kevin”, lost his life this morning when a concrete beam at the construction site for the Buddy’s Apartment complex on Sheriff Street came crashing down on him.
Emergency services were summoned to the scene as the man was pulled from beneath large pieces of the collapsed concrete beam.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
One of his workmates said he was in the same area working with the now dead labourer, moments before the beam came crashing down.
In addition to the labour investigators, the Guyana Police Force is also conducting a probe.
