A worker was beheaded with the excavator by rescuers trying to get him out of the dirt above him
A 55-year-old worker from Brasov was beheaded while a colleague of his, supervised by firefighters, dug to get him out of the ground that had surged over him.
His colleague began digging with the excavator after him, at the urging of firefighters who did not have another machine to help the victim. Although the firefighters were overseeing the entire operation, the excavator's cup cut off the man's head buried beneath the ground. Investigators are now going to determine if the man was still alive at the time he was beheaded.
Prosecutors are now investigating the tragedy and looking for the culprits, in an investigation in which the firefighters are targeted.
Now, the entire incident and the entire intervention are being investigated by the Prosecutor's Office of the Brasov County Court, in connection with the facts of culpable murder, the failure to take security measures at work and the desecration of corpses, according to digi2.ro.
