Worker falls to death in Subic's Hanjin plant

A 19-year-old laborer at the Hanjin Heavy Industries died in an accident while working at the shipyard in Barangay Cawag, Subic, Zambales late Wednesday afternoon.

Police said Arvy Mahinay, of Gawad Kalinga neighborhood in Barangay Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City, succumbed to multiple body fractures and a broken skull.

The victim is affiliated with Bodah employment agency, reportedly a sub-contractor of Hanjin.

Senior Superintnendent Roland Felix, officer-in-charge of the Zambales provincial police office, said the accident happened past 4 p.m.

Felix, quoting reports submitted by Subic police, said the victim fell from the dry-dock beam and landed on his head. The victim died on the spot.

Rommel Doble, Hanjin safety officer, immediately reported the incident to the police.

Mahinay’s body was brought to Subic Funeral Homes for autopsy, said Felix.

At least seven lives have been claimed at the Hanjin’s work area this year alone. All of the deaths are accident-related. Jess Malabanan - ABS CBN
