One of the workers who died in the construction of a shopping plaza in Cumbres was 15 years old

New information about the construction accident Plaza Sikara, in the neighborhood of Cumbres Madeira, which left five workers dead, revealed some of the irregularities to which the employees of this work were subjected.

According to the official statement released by Secretary of Labor of Nuevo León the first irregularity is that the company behind this construction employs a young man, who at the age of 15 was one of the fatal victims of this accident.

The state agency also reported that the employees of this construction do not have medical insurance, so by doing so, the company will fail one of the basic rights of its employees.

After this accident was recorded, the Ministry of Labor, through Director of Inspection and Surveillance, determined the suspension of this construction located at Alejandro de Rodas cross on Paseo de los Leones 1001, in the neighborhood of Cumbres Madeira, in Monterrey. Instead, he reported that the investigation will continue to make more details about this accident known to the public.

According to the statement, it is the director of the inspection, Blas Escamilla, who “will continue to take care of the situation to determine the corresponding legal action.”

How did the accident happen where five workers died?

According to the Nuevo León Ministry of Labor, the accident occurred when five workers climbed to the top of the construction aboard a freight elevator at an approximate height of 25 meters long.

The accident occurred when one of the cables supporting the elevator could not support the weight of the men and exploded, causing the platform to tilt and, thus, causing the fall of the workers, who were trapped on the elevator platform. .

According to the agency’s report, four men died at the scene of the accident, while one was transferred to the General Hospital of Zone Number 21 of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), who died on arrival at this hospital.
