Another worker killed on the job
Two days after a safety supervisor was killed while on the job, another accident has claimed the life of a 31-year-old welder at a different company. Silon Sucre, 31, of Beach Road, Palo Seco, died on Wednesday night after being pinned between a manlift basket and a length of pipe at New Iron Steel, Caribbean Drive, Point Lisas. Sucre, an employee of RPS Technical Services, was working on the manlift some 15 feet off the ground around 9.20 pm when he got stuck between a pipe and a lift basket. Police said he was pinned for 20 minutes.
By the time he arrived at the San Fernando General Hospital he was dead. Yesterday, president of the Steel Workers’ Union of T&T, Lex Lovel, said the union was still trying to gather information and was not in a position to comment. Sucre’s death came two days after Trinrico employee, Roy Ramjugsingh, 55, was pinned by a forklift while directing a truck at his Gasparillo workplace. The incident took place around midday. An investigation has since been launched into Ramjugsingh’s death.
