World Cup news, Qatar 2022: Latest indictment on Qatar World Cup hopes

Published

WORK practices at a Qatar World Cup stadium construction site where a British worker died last year were “downright dangerous”, a coroner in Britain probing the death said Tuesday.

Zachary Cox, who was born in Johannesburg but later lived in Britain, plummeted 39 metres (128 feet) when a hoist he was using to put in place a suspended walkway broke at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha in January, 2017.

British coroner Veronica Hamilton-Deeley found the rope-access technician had fallen head first, sustaining brain injuries and a broken neck, after a safety harness had also snapped.

Brighton and Hove Coroner’s Court, in southern England where Cox had lived — heard new working practices, including the use of extra hoists to speed up construction after problems with some of the heavy metal platforms, had preceded the fatal incident.
