Four days after three persons were killed when a concrete slab collapsed below the Sahar Elevated Access Road leading to the international airport, a fourth body was found at the site Sunday. The deceased, Arun Kumar, 27, was part of a team of twelve workers.
Police said the body was found by fire brigade officials. On Wednesday night, a concrete slab that was being hoisted by a crane collapsed along with the crane.
The police learnt that Kumar was missing and had launched a search for him.
"After a post-mortem at Cooper Hospital, the body was handed over to his family. Rescue operations are currently under way and the fire brigade is clearing the debris," said senior inspector Jaiprakash Giram of Sahar police station.
The road is being constructed by Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) and the contract executed by engineering firm Larsen & Toubro (L&T). Three workers, Rambali Haas (44), Santosh Das (26) and Jaychand Mandal (30) were killed and the police arrested site engineer Subbaiah Shravanan (34), supervisor Pechu Subramaniam (27) and foreman Lakhvir Singh (27), who are currently in judicial custody.
