Tragic end for Mohamad Oufraan Latona. This garbage collector, employed by the municipality of Vacoas-Phoenix, fell heavily from a garbage truck this Wednesday morning, June 19. Called to the scene, SAMU personnel could only note the death of this 60-year-old man. The post-mortem conducted by police forensic chief Dr Sudesh Kumar Gungadin attributed the victim's death to skull fracture.

At the Latona family in Sadally, there is consternation. At the same time, the insecurity around this profession is criticized and tongues are loosened. The garbage collectors from the Vacoas-Phoenix town hall recount their ordeal and the risks of their job, pointing out the town hall's inability to acquire new household waste bins. For 10 years, employees have said they have been waiting for modern trucks. As a result, with broken down trucks, the only ones available today are those requiring human intervention, which increases the risk of falls, estimate employees who contacted us. “Two deaths in six months,” they say. They are demanding more security and more resources to be able to serve city dwellers.

Asked for a reaction on the subject, the mayor of the municipality of Vacoas-Phoenix, Mike Mungur, presented his sympathies to the Latona family. He announced that an internal investigation had been opened to shed light on this accident.
