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 Windward 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.

  1. These people have responsibilities, bills, and expenses to take care of. A lawsuit should be filed in court to take legal action against the companies involved. Firstly, the employer for ensuring adequate safety protocol was established and secondly, the driver of the machinery.
    Too frequently people die on construction sites without any fair compensation simply due to mal practice by their employers.
