Plumber crushed by water tank

A 52-year-old British plumber, David Hopkins, was the victim of a fatal labour accident in Yermasoyia, Limassol on Tuesday, when he was crushed by a water tank he had been working on.
According to initial reports, shortly after 2pm Hopkins had been attempting to fix a water tank on the roof of a five-storey building, when the structure the tank was resting on collapsed.
The collapse caused the man to fall off the roof onto the porch of a flat on the first floor, where he was crushed by the falling tank and killed instantly.
Members of the police and the fire brigade, as well as an ambulance and members of the Labour Inspection department rushed to the scene.
Initial investigation suggested poor safety measures taken by the victim.
