The body of a worker who died in an accident at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore has been found.
A Keppel Shipyard spokesperson confirmed that the body was that of a 38-year-old Bangladeshi worker, who fell into the sea when part of a concrete pier at the yard collapsed on Monday. The deceased worker was an employee of Kumarann Marine.
A spokesperson of the Singapore Ministry of Manpower said that part of the concrete pier on which a crane was standing, collapsed resulting in the crane falling onto a vessel berthed in the yard.
“We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased and are rendering our full assistance to them. Keppel Shipyard values the safety and life of every worker and we deeply regret this tragic incident. We are working closely with the authorities to conduct thorough investigations and review,” the Keppel Shipyard spokesperson said.
Four other workers were reported to have suffered minor injuries in the accident.
