It is unfortunate that six innocent workers perished in this accident. It is obvious that safety norms were floated big time (Photo shows no shoring for such deep excavation). I hope the concerned government authorities do justice to these workers and punish the persons responsible for so many deaths.

RIP and God bless their families back home.

Sincere condolences to the unnamed workers who perished.

Interested to know what compensation will be provided to their families or is their company indemnified by a ''work without liability'' clause in their job contracts?

Company should strike a balance between production and protection.. In the name of budget and schedule, QC and Safety are compromised.. This becomes very costly.. God should help and enable compensation for the family of deceased.. RIP brothers..
