  • Worker dies after fall at building site
A construction worker died on Tuesday after falling from height at a building site on Anderson Road in Sau Mau Ping.

The accident happened at around 10.30am.

The man was unconscious when he was taken to United Christian Hospital, where he was later declared dead.

The Labour Department said it was investigating the accident.

Earlier this month, the department launched more than 60 prosecutions under the Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance and other laws against those alleged to be responsible for the collapse of a construction crane at an Anderson Road building site last September.

Three workers were killed and six were injured when the tower crane crashed down on top of several temporary site offices.

After a half-year investigation of one of Hong Kong's most serious industrial accidents in recent years, officials found that a welded joint on the base of the crane had been torn, causing it to collapse.
