Worker dies after crane collapses at Yangzijiang yard

A crane collapsed in a workshop at Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding, an affiliate yard of Yangzijiang Shipbuiling, yesterday leading to the death of a crane operator.

The workers at the workshop called emergency services right after the incident occurred however the crane operator had already died by the time the ambulance arrived.

It is the second fatal incident at New Yangzi Shipbuilding in the past three months. In July, a welder of the shipyard died from a heatstroke.

The operations at the workshop have now been suspended and an investigation is underway to find the cause of the accident.
