Updated: May 12
A 63-year-old construction worker has died from complications after he fell from a two-story school building being constructed in Aoa a week ago.
Manu’a Development Corporation partner Pa’u Roy Ausage, confirmed this with KVZK news, saying the employee was a relative of his from Samoa.
He is a father of eight and his wife was by his bedside up until his death in the Intensive Care Unit last Sunday.
KVZK reached out to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration Office (OSHA) in Honolulu earlier this week, however, there is no report on record regarding this incident.
Pa’u confirmed that an incident report has been filed in line with OSHA regulations compliance, whereas reports must be filed within eight hours of an incident.
The school project in Aoa was awarded to a Manu’a Development Corporation Construction Company owned by former Governor Lolo Matalasi Moliga and his family, and Mr Pau’s company was subcontracted.
