56 year old man killed in labour accident at Vassiliko

A 56 year old man suffered fatal injuries in a labour accident at Vassiliko on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after a construction worker was killed at Ayios Tychonas when he was buried in a mound of earth.

Philenews  said the accident occurred at around 11 am at the cement factory when the victim, a UK Cypriot, was unloading a generator with lifting gear. The Cyprus News Agency named the victim as Andy Evangeli, resident of Dherynia.

He was rushed to Limassol Hospital by ambulance where he succumbed to his injuries a few hours later.

Meanwhile, a post-mortem examination carried out on Tuesday determined that Yiorgios Georgiou who was killed in Ayios Tychonas yesterday, died of asphyxia.
