A construction worker has unfortunately recently been stabbed repeatedly whilst working on a site in Scotland. The victim suffered injuries to his shoulder, neck and also to other parts of his body from the stab wounds.
In response to this, paramedics rushed to the scene and took the worker to the hospital. There, the victim’s wounds were treated and his condition has now been regarded to be stable.
Witnesses describe that the incident occurred whilst the construction worker was completing cladding work on the site. One witness stated: “the guy was involved with the building work in the street when the attack took place.”
“Cops sealed the street off and there must have been around six or seven police cars here, along with the ambulance.”
“It looked like the guy was being treated in the ambulance for a while before they headed to the hospital.”
“It’s not the kind of thing you expect to see first thing in the morning, that’s for sure.”
A spokesperson for the Scottish Police described: “at around 9.45am, police were called to a report of a 22-year-old man having been assaulted on the High Street, Johnstone.”
“Police and emergency services attended and the man has been taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment to injuries to his shoulder and neck.”
“Enquiries are continuing. Medical staff describe his condition as stable and the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.”
Also, with workers safety under question at the moment, it is worrying to see the accessibility passersby have to construction sites. For example, two teens managed to gain access to a construction site recently and caused a whopping £40,000 in damages! Take a look at the incident here.
Not only that, but separate incidents have also occurred where thieves have managed to gain access to sites and steal equipment. Take a look at one example here, these construction workers certainly weren’t parting with their tools easily!
So what do you think of this incident? Should there be more safety for workers on site? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
