Sargodha: 2 labourers die at stone crushing site

Sargodha (Web Desk): At least two labourers were crushed to their death and two others injured at a stone crushing site in Sargodha on Tuesday, the sources reported.


Police provided details that the labourers were crushed underneath a crusher filled with heavy stones.

Such accidents are not uncommon, given the poor working conditions the labourers often suffer at these sites.

Many workers reportedly suffer from pulmonary problems, besides other illnesses, as workplace safety is neither practiced nor monitored at most stone crushing plants across the country. 

Crusher plants supply crushed stones for construction.
