A Worker Dies in Kermanshah

 

 

 

HRANA News Agency – Faramarz Alizadeh who was a contract worker in Kermanshah’s flour factory died in hospital from injuries caused by the collapse of an elevator.

 

According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), Faramarz Alizadeh, son of Abbas, was married with five children and lived in Kandoleh Javanrud, [a city in Kermanshah Province].  Two week ago, he was severely injured after the collapse of an elevator from the third floor at the flour factory where he worked.

 

Faramarz Alizadeh was transferred to Kermanshah’s Taleghani Hospital and died there on the evening of May 8, 2011 due to the extent of his injuries.  He was not covered by any health insurance plans because he had a temporary work contract.

 

The death of this worker occurs while health care providers at the hospital were negligent and failed to provide the proper care for Faramarz Alizaadeh simply because he had no health insurance and unable to pay for the expenses himself.

 

Located at Vakil Agha region in Kermanshah, the flour factory has many workers hired under temporary contracts.
