The young boy-man stood carefully on the edge of the very oblique clay tile roof as he manually pulled up an 18 kg bucket of concrete paste hanging on a flimsy rope…the men below (his superiors most likely) just watched…
One false move and this boy falls off the roof at a height of 4 meters or greater; no security measures whatsoever…another victim of circumstances, one more premature death or permanent handicap, another family suffering the consequences of an avoidable accident!
