By Aaron Humes: An accident at a boatyard in Belize City this afternoon claimed the life of a watchman originally from San Jose Succotz, Cayo District.
According to police, 35-year-old Nuelmar Garcia was on duty and assisting a heavy-duty machine operator, Felipe Pech, to tie a heavy-duty fork to the bucket of a backhoe so that it could be lifted.
As Pech lifted the fork, it got loose and struck Garcia, causing severe injury to the chest that killed him almost instantly.
A post-mortem examination has been scheduled. Police are investigating.
