Heavy rain in Oman leaves six workers dead

The workers were identified as Indian nationals

Six foreign workers were buried alive as heavy rains inundated a construction site in Seeb, Muscat, Times of Oman reported.

The workers, identified as Indian nationals, were working on a underground portion of the piping project. Despite efforts to save them, the workers were found dead, engulfed in mud and rainwater.

“Despite the heavy rainfall, the workers were carrying out the work at the site,” a Public Authority for Civil Defence and Ambulance (PACDA) official told Times of Oman.

“They were positioned inside the tunnel, but suddenly, the rainwater came in, and they could not make it outside. This, unfortunately, led to their death.”
