The victim was supposed to take this year’s HSC exams, says family
A man has died following a crane incident at a construction site in Pirojpur.
The incident was reported late on Monday from a village in the southern district’s Bhandaria upazila.
The victim was identified as Isa Howlader. The incident took place at the construction site of the local Nurul Quran Hafizia Madrasa.
“We rushed to the scene after hearing a loud noise and found Isa unconscious on the floor,” said Barkat Ullah, his co-worker.
According to him, they were not aware that the crane was being dismantled.
Isa was rushed to the Bharandia Upazila Health Complex. “He was pronounced dead on arrival,” said Medical Officer Faisal Hasan.
Isa, who was supposed to take the HSC exams this year, took a job at the construction site as schools and colleges have been closed for the pandemic, said his brother Monir Hawlader.
Bhandaria police station OC Masumur Rahman Biswas said that they will initiate legal actions following an investigation.
