A construction worker died on Wednesday morning after falling off scaffolding at a building site in Rishon Lezion.
The United Hatzalah paramedic service said the worker, in his 30s, was declared dead at the scene on Lehi Street.
“When we arrived at the scene we found a construction worker suffering from a full-system trauma after having fallen from scaffolding while working,” a medic from the Hatzalah emergency service said. “Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead at the scene due to the severity of the injuries that he suffered.”
This was the third construction fatality to occur in Israel since the beginning of 2020.
