Two workers die at Samsung Ningbo yard

Two separate accidents occurred at Samsung Heavy Industries’ Ningbo yard in China on Saturday leading to the death of two workers.

One worker got an electric shock when operating a cutting machine and died after being sent to the hospital for emergency treatment. Two hours after the incident, another worker fainted when he was taking a rest after completing some grinding work on a ship block. He died shortly after, with the cause of death unknown.

Authorities have ordered to suspend all operations at the yard and investigations are currently underway.
