A tragic accident at work claimed the life of a man, whose identity has not been established, around noon on Thursday, November 30.
The victim of the incident was the worker who fell from the scaffolding while working on the third floor of the facade of a house, located at Carrera 17 and Calle 56 in Bucaramanga.
“I don’t have a lifeline, I don’t have insurance. The worker poured cement on the façade, the scaffolding on one side, he fell to the second floor, flipped over and remained on the ground,” reported a witness to the events.
After falling violently from several meters high, the worker was left unconscious on the platform.
It didn’t take long for the call to come in and the ambulance paramedics were on the scene to help him. However, after providing care, it was determined that this person died as a result of the stroke suffered.
The body was covered with a cloth while the Technical Investigation Corps, CTI, was at the scene to conduct a technical inspection.
The victim’s companions said that they called him a nickname and did not know his identity.
Competent authorities will check if the workers have the elements necessary for their safety.
