    Wasn't he wearing a helmet? The owner and the site engineer is criminally liable.

    I see too often construction workers take no steps to make themselves safe, working without proper shoes, helmets, and doing things that are so very dangerous at height.I really do not understand why, unless it is a Sri Lankan thing to think you can take risks forever, and somehow beat statistics?

    Perhaps an accident but, what benefits will his heirs get for somebody's negligence? Only the burial?
