Man dies from digger blow while watching rubble removal in Maras
The 58-year-old Mustafa Kalin has died from a digger blow in earthquake-hit Maras while watching a rubble removal work.
Kalin was watching the work on the Azerbaijan Avenue, one of the biggest earthquake-hit destinations of Maras’ city center, Arti Gercek said on Monday, citing reports from T24 and state-run Anadolu news agency.
Although the avenue was closed to vehicular traffic due to removal works, it was not closed to pedestrian traffic, it said.
A 44-year-old digger operator was detained, following the incident.
