British national crushed to death

STACY MOORE Wednesday, March 15 2017

A BRITISH national died after falling into an aggregate bin while working at an asphalt plant in Princes Town yesterday morning.

Dead is civil engineer John Morris, 56, of Scotland. According to a police report, at about 11 am, Morris was working at Lutchmeesingh’s Contractors asphalt plant, along the M1 Ring Road, Princes Town when the incident occurred.

Reports are that Morris was attempting to fix a problem at the aggregate mixing bin when he fell inside. Morris’ co-workers heard his screams and rushed to his assistance.

The employees also reported to police that they dug for several minutes before they were able to pull Morris out of the pile of aggregate.

He was rushed to Princes Town Health Facility where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy is expected to be performed today at the Forensic Science Centre. Morris lived alone along Matilda Road, Princes Town near to the asphalt plant. He had no relatives living in the country.

Efforts to contact officials at Lutchmeesingh’s Contractors proved futile as calls went unanswered. Several persons at the company have since been questioned. Princes Town Police are continuing investigations.
