An investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the accident.

A 36-year-old Asian worker died in Sharjah after a crane collapsed and fell on him on Thursday morning, police said.

The man was carrying out his duty at a site in the emirate’s Al Madam area when the incident happened. The Sharjah Police, along with paramedics, rushed to the site as soon as they received a report.

The worker, however, died on the spot after being crushed by the crane.

An investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the accident and ensure that there was no foul play involved.

When the police and investigators arrived at the site, they found that the security and safety surpervisors of the contracting company in charge had already run away. They were reportedly present when the crane collapsed.

The authorities managed to track them down and take them into custody for interrogation.

The body of the worker had been transferred  to the forensic laboratory in Sharjah for repatriation procedures.
