2 welders fall from 3rd floor, injured

Thursday, 14 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

In a tragic incident, two labourers were injured after falling from the third floor of a house in southeast Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar-1 area where they were carrying out welding work. 

One of them fell to the ground and sustained serious injuries while the other’s fall was broken by a metal grill on the second floor on which he got stuck and escaped with minor injuries.

Police said that the seriously injured labourer is out of danger and under treatment at a nearby hospital.

According to a senior police official, the incident took place at around 4 PM on October 10 when the duo was carrying out welding work in the balcony on third floor when they lost balance and fell down.

“A case was registered under sections 288 (negligent conduct with respect to pulling down or repairing buildings) and 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code against the contractor as he did not provide any safety equipment to the labourers,” said the senior police official.
