TWO construction workers from Slovakia were killed in an accident at the construction site of a power station in Germany on October 25.
The two workers, aged 35 and 32, and a third victim, a Czech 25-year-old, died after steel beams weighing 450 tonnes fell more than 100 metres, taking the construction workers with them.
Five other builders were seriously injured, including two more Slovaks, the Pravda daily wrote. Their injuries are not life-threatening.
The state prosecution in Mönchengladbach has closed the site and started an investigation.
The power station in Grevenbroich-Neurath, near the Dutch border, is a project of the RWE energy company. During the peak hours, up to 4,000 people were working on the site.
