Police launch investigation into deadly construction site accident

Police have launched a criminal investigation into a recent accident at a construction site in Mankkaa, Espoo, which claimed the lives of two Estonian construction workers. The workers were buried under a pile of soil after the sides of a three-metre deep excavation collapsed on 9 May.

The charges tentatively considered include work safety offence, reveals Nina Kangas, a chief inspector at the Police Department of Länsi-Uusimaa.

The objective of the investigation is to determine the sequence of events, the possible cause of the accident and its consequences. A bulletin released by police on 10 May suggests that there is reason to believe excavation safety precautions were neglected at the construction site.
