The Education Ministry has reported that on Wednesday morning an industrial accident took place at the St. Theresa College Boys’ Secondary in Birkirkara. While workers were installing a safety net around the new turf pitch, a construction crane leaned over to one side. A worker was injured and an ambulance was called while relevant authorities and the Police were informed immediately.
The worker, who suffered light injuries, was taken to Mater Dei Hospital and he was released late in the afternoon. At no point were students or school personnel in any danger as this area was out of bounds throughout the day.
