Shipyard worker killed, another injured in Hanjin accident

A Filipino worker was killed while another was severely injured in an accident at the Korean-owned Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Philippines Inc. in Subic, Zambales Friday morning.

Victim Raldon del Rosario, 19, of Kalinga, Apayao was killed after his head was crushed by an 850-kg steel rolling door that fell on top of him around 8 a.m. A co-worker, Camalao Bochei, 24, was injured after the door fell on his left leg.

Both workers are employees of Redondo I-Tech Corporation, a subcontractor of Hanjin.

Investigators from the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority said workers were connecting the steel base canvass when the chain holding the canvass broke off. The heavy steel base then fell on del Rosario and Bochei, killing one and injuring the other.

The SBMA said it has suspended work at the Hanjin assembly area where the accident occurred. It added that at least 18 workers have died in the shipyard since 2006.

Hanjin management has yet to issue a statement about the accident.
