Iran: Footage shows moments before workers fall to their deaths

Two workers fell 100 feet to their deaths while working on a high-rise building during a violent dust storm.

Horrifying footage shows the two men being thrown from a hanging platform hanging from the roof of a high-rise building in Iran.

The unsecured cradle swayed wildly in the air when battered by winds during the sandstorm in Urmia, west Azerbaijan province.

Both men clung desperately to the sides of the flimsy structure as it repeatedly slammed into the building and parts of it began to fall off.

Eventually, a man slipped out of the cradle as it fell apart and fell to the ground.

Seconds later, his colleague fell through the railing and was able to hold on with his fingertips. But he lost his footing and hit the ground with a heart-wrenching impact.

One of the workers was already dead when his body was discovered on the ground, according to local officials.

His colleague was revived and taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Baqer Bahrami from the West Azerbaijan Emergency Medical Management Center confirmed the tragedy.






The platform rocked in the wind and crashed into the building

“Two construction workers working at height died in a fall during a severe storm,” the spokesman said.

“After the provincial emergency services arrived at the scene, we found the lifeless body of one of the workers and the second person was resuscitated after the efforts of paramedics.

“He was transferred to the medical center but died in hospital.”

Sandstorms hit parts of the Middle East on an unprecedented scale in 2022.
