Worker killed on weekend construction site

A construction worker was killed at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital site on the weekend.

The male worker died late last Saturday afternoon. He was 63 years old and sustained crush injuries, according to The Advertiser.

SafeWork SA is investigating the incident.

“I offer my condolences to the man’s family and friends at this difficult time, and every support is being offered to the family,” said SafeWork SA Executive Director Marie Boland in a media statement.

Another worker, 54-year-old Jorge Castillo-Riffo, was crushed to death at the same site in 2014.

The most recent fatality brings South Australia’s 2016 work-related death toll to five.
