Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Young Worker Electrocuted While Clearing Debris of Collapsed Mobile Tower

Tragedy struck on Sunday in Nandini Layout, as a 20-year-old labourer lost his life to electrocution while engaged in the cleanup operation of a mobile tower that had collapsed a few days earlier. The unfortunate victim, identified as Jatin Kumar, was an integral part of the crane operator team assigned to remove the debris from the scene.

During the debris removal process, a catastrophic incident occurred when the crane inadvertently came into contact with a live electricity wire. The resultant electric shock caused Jatin to collapse on the ground, while his fellow workers were forcibly thrown away from the crane, miraculously escaping with only minor injuries.

Promptly, the critically injured Jatin was rushed to the hospital, but tragically, medical professionals declared him dead upon arrival. The loss of this young life has sent shockwaves through the community, leaving family, friends, and colleagues grief-stricken.

In response to this devastating incident, the Nandini Layout police have taken swift action by registering a case of negligence resulting in death against both the telecom company responsible for the tower and the crane operators. This case will undergo thorough investigation to ascertain accountability for this tragic turn of events.

The mobile tower’s collapse, which led to this heart-wrenching incident, can be attributed to ongoing construction activities on the neighboring plot. On Friday, in Parvathi Nagar, Laggere, the mobile tower crumbled, narrowly missing an adjacent building where eleven individuals resided. Fortunately, these residents managed to escape unharmed, but they were promptly evacuated from the premises as a precautionary measure.

This unfortunate incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of adhering to strict safety protocols in the construction and maintenance of infrastructure. The loss of a young life underscores the need for enhanced precautions to prevent such tragic accidents from occurring in the future. Authorities must now conduct a thorough investigation to ensure justice is served and to implement measures that will safeguard the lives of workers and residents alike.
