Nerja Man Crushed

There's been another work-related accident, but this time in Nerja when metal sheeting fell on a worker.

It was at 14.30h this Monday that the emergency service received an alert to say that the owner of a small construction company had been seriously injured when steel sheets toppled onto him when they were being moved.

The accident occurred within a walled piece of land that the man used as a construction-material yard within the Castillo Alto Industrial Estate.

The 40-year-old victim was taken to hospital with a double fracture in a tibia, eight broken ribs and a fractured collar bone. Given the seriousness of his injuries, he was flown by helicopter to hospital.

The fire service had been required as the victim was trapped under the fallen sheets of metal.
