Kimberley, South Africa
Kimberley – A man was crushed to death when a metal load hanging from a crane fell on him in a scrapyard in Kimberley, paramedics said on Wednesday.
A crane lifts a car body at a scrap metal recycling plant.
“His colleagues managed to remove the metal from his body, but it was already too late as he had died due to serious injuries he suffered.”
It was not clear how the load of metal loosened and fell, said Jackson.
