Mexico: Worker dies when the hook of an industrial crane falls on him

Ciudad Juárez.- A worker died shortly before noon when he was on the platform of a tractor-trailer and the hook of an industrial crane hit him in the head, reported elements of the Municipal Public Security Secretariat (SSPM).

The accident occurred in a company located on the Camino Real peripheral, near the road that leads to Casas Grandes, where Rescue and Fire elements arrived.

The victim was on the platform attached to a truck where some metal parts were going to be lifted with the help of an industrial crane, from which a hook weighing several kilos came off and hit him.

The place is secured by preventive police officers who gave notice of the death to the State Prosecutor’s Office in the North Zone.
