Worker dies at Subic shipbuilding facility

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT, Philippines — A 19-year-old worker died in yet another accident at an assembly facility of the Hanjin Heavy Industries Corporation-Philippines in Subic on Friday, officials said.

The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) identified the fatality as Raldon del Rosario from Kalinga province, an employee of Redondo I-Tech Corporation. He died of massive head injuries.

Another worker, Camalao Bochie, 24, also from Kalinga, suffered leg injuries. Both victims were rushed to St. Jude Hospital in Olongapo City where Del Rosario was confirmed dead.

Initial reports released by the SBMA said the victims were pinned down by the metal base of a newly installed manual canvass door that fell at one of the assembly facilities of the South Korean shipbuilding company.

Workers of Great Steel Con, a subcontractor of Hanjin, were testing the manual canvass door at around 8:30 a.m. when the accident happened, the SBMA said.

Del Rosario is the 18th shipbuilding and construction related fatality at the sprawling South Korean facility here.

Last year, government regulators ordered Hanjin to stop its operations in its one of its assembly shop after an 8-ton girder assembly being lifted by a crane fatally struck a worker at the back of his head. - John Bayarong, GMANews.TV
