A worker was injured on a construction site, in Pontpoint, this Wednesday, July 6. The town located between Compiègne and Pont-Sainte-Maxence is carrying out sanitation work. However, a backhoe found itself off balance and partly fell into a trench located on rue Furon, at the end of the morning. The machine got stuck, sideways, just a few centimeters from a house.

This one “was not touched“, specifies Bruno Dauguet, the mayor of the village. As for the officer operating the excavator, “he was taken care of by the emergency services.»

The causes of the accident remain to be determined. Once the rescue operation was carried out and the excavator raised, the situation was back to normal. Construction could resume.
