3 workers die from electrocution in Oman

Three Bangladeshi workers, including two siblings, have died from electrocution while fixing a water pump in Oman on Tuesday. 

The deceased are Mohammad Mostafa, 50, and Nur Hossain Nasir, 40, sons of Haji Fakhrul Islam of Satashdron village in Subarnachar upazila, and Alamgir Hossain, 35, son of Bahar Uddin of Miarhat area in the same upazila, one of Mostafa's relatives Zia Uddin Farooq said, adding that the incident occurred 8:00am local time.

Farooq said Mostafa went to Oman about 20 years ago.

Five years later his younger brother Nasir also followed him to the Middle East country and joined his Mostafa at the same company as an electrician.

Alamgir, who joined the same company in Oman about six years back, was staying together with the two siblings in the city of Al Wafa.

On Tuesday morning, Alamgir first entered into a deep-well for carrying out installation works of a water pump while Mustafa followed him later on.

Failing to get any response from the duo for long, Nasir also went inside the deep well and came in contact with live electricity.

Being informed by the co-workers, a firefighting unit rushed to the spot and recovered their bodies.
