A 20-year-old Navi Mumbai labourer was crushed to death by a crane at a cable laying site, police said on Sunday, reported news agency PTI.

The incident took place at around 11.30 am on Saturday in Kharghar area, they said, reported PTI.

The Navi Mumbai labourer was pushing a cable drum at the site where digging was underway when he accidentally tripped and fell on the road near a crane.

At that time, a crane operator moved the machine forward, crushing the Navi Mumbai labourer to death, an official from Kharghar police station said, reported PTI.

The deceased, a resident of Belapur area in Navi Mumbai, has been identified as Sunil Narsima Tangdi, reported PTI.

Based on a complaint by his brother, a case has been registered against the crane operator under Indian Penal Code sections 304A (causing death by negligence), 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life), 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life) and provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, the official said, reported PTI.
