“An event like this does not occur unless someone failed to follow the rules. We often find it's a result of a low bid that saves money by failing to provide adequate protection and safety devices for the workers."
Rye, New York (PRWEB) August 01, 2014
Two New York construction workers were sent to hospital after they were trapped by dirt in a trench they were working in, according to a report in the New York Post (7/31/14). A Rye police spokesperson said that “…it appears they didn’t have any safeguards to hold the dirt from coming back on them.”
Steven Schwartzapfel, a New York construction accident lawyer explained, “An event like this does not occur unless someone failed to follow the rules. We often find it's a result of a low bid that saves money by failing to provide adequate protection and safety devices for the workers."
Mr. Schwartzapfel expressed his concern for the workers, and he was relieved to hear that the workers were rescued and taken to hospital. Rye Mayor Joseph Sack reported on Newsday.com (7/31/14) that the workers were "alert and conscious" after their ordeal on Thursday.
