The incredible escalation of accidents in the workplace in Salento shows no sign of abating. And, unfortunately, yet another episode that occurred this morning, just before seven, once again tells of a very serious injury. The episode, this time, took place in Lecce, in via di Valesio, in the San Pio district, a few steps from the entrance of one of the offices of the University of Salento. Here, a 50-year-old man, a worker who was working on a construction site, fell from a scaffold over four meters high during the execution of the work, and completely lost consciousness. The man was immediately accompanied to the Vito Fazzi hospital in Lecce, where he is still in a coma and in very serious conditions.
Another worker, who was working on the same site, was also injured, but his condition is good, having only sustained a slight injury to his ankle. The 118 health workers intervened on the spot who, immediately realizing the serious condition of the 50-year-old, intubated him and transported him with urgency and red code to the Fazzi. The man is hospitalized in the intensive care unit. The police and the inspectors of the Spesal of the Lecce ASL intervened on the spot, who will now have to reconstruct the dynamics of the event exactly and establish any responsibilities.
