Marabella father crushed to death in tragic accident

Police are investigating the death of a Marabella father who was crushed to death at his workplace on Tuesday afternoon.

The deceased has been identified as 28-year-old Miklos Thomas, 28, of Marabella.

Thomas, who was a technician at Diversified Limited along Factory Road, Chaguanas, was said to be inspecting one of the machines around 3.30 pm on Tuesday when he was pinned by the machine.

Thomas was unable to extricate himself and was crushed to death.

Officers from the Central Division responded and investigations are ongoing.

The company's website states that it is involved in "the business of blow molding of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)".  

"We have technicians who are skilled in both processing of bottles and maintenance of the machines.  Each shift has a technician to process bottles, while the maintenance team is on site everyday for repairs and general up-keep," the company said. 

The incident has been ruled as accidental.

More on this as it becomes available.
