Police Probe Sudden Death of Two Men

The police are continuing investigations into the circumstances that resulted in the death of two men at a construction site.

It was reported that around 12:30 pm on Friday 26 May, a heavy-duty equipment operator was carrying out work at a construction site at Winward Estate on Pigeon Point Beach, when the machine apparently came in contact with a building both men were working on.
The building reportedly collapsed, causing injuries to a 36 year-old man of American Road and a man from Ottos.
The Ottos man, who is believed to be in his mid-twenties was transported to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center by the Emergency Medical Services. He was pronounced dead at 3:09 pm. The other worker was pronounced dead on the scene around 5:17 pm.
The Police Administration is expressing condolences to the families who are mourning, as a result of this tragic incident.
