A 57-year-old man died on Wednesday morning at Cimpor’s premises in Alhandra, Vila Franca de Xira. The worker was reportedly crushed by a platform used in conjunction with a conveyor belt to transport raw materials to vessels.

The fatal accident occurred at 10:35 am, next to the pier where this loading operation is carried out.

The alert was given by the company itself and nine members of the volunteer firefighters of Alhandra, INEM and PSP were sent to the scene.

Despite efforts, there was nothing to be done and death was declared. The Working Conditions Authority will investigate the circumstances in which this death occurred.
