    ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — A Russian warship under construction at a shipyard in St. Petersburg caught fire Friday, leaving at least three workers injured. The Provorny (Agile) corvette being built at the Severnaya Verf (Northern Shipyard) was completely engulfed by flames, and nearly 170 firefighters were taking part in efforts to extinguish the blaze that sent massive plumes of smoke over Russia’s second-largest city. Local authorities said three workers were injured, with two of them requiring hospitalization. An official panel has been created to investigate the cause of the fire, which wasn’t immediately known. The corvette is the latest in a series of such ships built at the shipyard. It was set to be commissioned by the navy late next year. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    NEEDHAM (CBS) – This time the worker survived, but falls like the one that happened at a Needham construction site Friday are the number one cause of workplace deaths in Massachusetts. “He was on a piece of steel and fell into the pit,” said Needham Fire Chief Dennis Condon. The drop was 15 to 20 feet down. Technical rescue crews didn’t have to go far. The worker was helping to construct part of their own Needham public safety complex. Boston sent help too. “We had to strap him into a stretcher and use ropes to pull him out,” said Condon.

    Day laborers, mostly immigrants, feel doubly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and unsafe working conditions NEW YORK.- A group of day laborers marched this Tuesday from the office of the Governor Andrew Cuomo in Manhattan to the site where a Hispanic construction worker died two weeks ago, to demand that the first state executive like the New York Legislature, take steps to prevent more fatalities among immigrant workers.
