On the evening of Au­gust 8, the po­lice re­ceived a re­port that a worker died at Khurd Group’s Khunnu Khoroolol’s con­struc­tion site in the 5th khoroo of Khan-Uul District. When the po­lice ar­rived at the scene, they dis­cov­ered that a 17-year-old con­struc­tion worker died due to a crane ac­ci­dent.

Po­lice spokesper­son M.Munkhtushig gave a re­port re­gard­ing the ac­ci­dent.

It was re­ported that a con­struc­tion worker lost his life. Would you please elab­o­rate on the mat­ter?

When the rope of the lift­ing crane broke, 17-year-old cit­i­zen A was hit on the head, which killed him in­stantly. The vic­tim used to be a cit­i­zen of the 11th khoroo of Songi­nokhairkhan District.

What was the vic­tim’s cause of death?

While the crane was car­ry­ing a con­tainer, the rope broke and it fell on the head of the vic­tim. The pre­lim­i­nary ex­am­i­na­tions de­ter­mined this to be the cause of death. Right now, fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion is be­ing made.

Will the con­struc­tion com­pany be held ac­count­able?

The com­pany would be at fault for em­ploy­ing an un­der­age cit­i­zen. This was also due to the weight lifted by the crane be­ing over the stan­dard limit.
