PostSubject: British man falls to death at Qatar World Cup building site   Sat Jan 21 2017, 12:58



A British man has fallen to his death at a World Cup stadium building site in Qatar, with the contractor, a joint venture between Belgian and Qatari firms, still working with local authorities to establish the cause of Thursday’s death.
The man who is yet to be identified lost his life as construction conditions have come under sharp scrutiny since the country was awarded the 2022 soccer tournament.
Qatar’s World Cup organizing committee is also investigating the incident and said it “shares our deepest condolences with the family even as the company overseeing the building of the Khalifa International Stadium, which will also host the world track championships in 2019 is trying to get to the root cause of the man’s death.
“The fatal accident took place while the worker was on a suspended catwalk platform designed to manage technical functions relating to sound and light installations,” Midmac-Six Construct said in a statement Friday.
“For unknown reasons one of the lever hoists supporting the platform failed, causing the fall of the worker, who was wearing all his safety equipment, including the safety harness.
“Sadly, the harness was cut during the fall with a fatal outcome. What caused the cut is subject to further investigation.”
The stadium, which was first built on the site in 1976, is next to the Aspire sports academy and is described by organizers as “Qatar’s most historic stadium.”
