SINGAPORE: A man has been charged with causing the death of his 62—year—old colleague through negligence.
T Magesvaran Tambisamy, 39, is accused of causing fellow production worker Fan Chow Lin’s death on 10 October 2012 at Idemitsu Lube Singapore.
The alleged incident took place when the accused was operating a forklift to lift a tote tank designed to hold up to 2,000 litres of liquids.
While doing so, Magesvaran is said to have mistakenly stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, therefore causing the forklift to move forward and knocking into the tank.
Mr Fan was crushed between two tanks.
For causing a man’s death due to negligence, the accused faces a jail term of up to two years and a fine.
