Falling Crane Traps Workers At Construction Site in Benin

ImageA construction crane crashed into the center of Central Hospital complex, Benin City, trapping seven workers. Six have been rescued, according to the state government.

The Edo government called the incident a “slight mishap”. An Italian construction firm, Sincies Chimentin Ltd, had been working on the new Central Hospital complex, Benin City, when the cranes collided with a freshly constructed beam, affecting a section of the multi-storey structure.

The state government said they have sent relief workers to free the last man, an Italian expatriate.    

The ongoing building construction is part of an infrastructural renewal programme initiated by Gov.  Adams Oshiomhole administration to upgrade the hospital constructed originally in 1903, the press release said.
