Crane truck accident leaves 2 workers dead, 2 seriously injured

The platform of a crane truck overturned at a reinforcement construction work site in the central city of Cheongju on Monday, killing two workers and seriously injuring two others, police said.

Around 1:29 p.m., two workers, both of them brothers, crashed to the ground 8 meters below when they were aboard the carrier to engage in reinforcing panels on the external wall of a two-story plant before being pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Another brother of theirs and their co-worker sustained serious injuries.

Police arrived at the scene for clues as to what caused the accident. (Yonhap)
