This morning started with the news of a tragedy that happened in a Siggiewi quarry, where a seven-year-old boy lost his life at Ta’ Kandja, Siġġiewi after being crushed by a bulldozer.

The tragic incident happened early this morning, shortly after 7am. From the first reports, it seems that an unmanned construction vehicle, which was parked on a ramp, started moving downwards. The boy, who died on the spot was with a family member who was doing some works.
