SINGAPORE: A construction worker was killed in a workplace accident in East Changi on Friday (February 22) after he was hit by a tipper truck, said Manpower Ministry (MOM).

"MOM was reported of a fatal accident in a work place at 31A Tanah Merah Coast Road," said the ministry in response to queries from Channel NewsAsia on Saturday.

"A 27-year-old Indian worker was on the left of a tipper truck at T junction, when the tipper truck turned to the left and hit down."

The deceased worker was employed by the Construction and Civil Engineering Contractor of Koh Brother.

In a statement, the Changi Airport Group said she was working with the contractor to provide support to the family and employee.
