Dramatic accident at work this weekend in the quarries of the Garandeau company in Terres-de-Haute-Charente.

Saturday morning, a 56-year-old employee was swept away by a landslide.

This Monday, his body has still not been found and the search is suspended due to weather conditions, reports

Sud Ouest.

If the quarries are closed on weekends, this man had come to accompany a subcontractor who had to carry out repairs on the spot.

At around 9 a.m. he was driving a loader when the land collapsed.

He fell about ten meters before ending up in the water.

He was buried by rubble.

A judicial investigation was opened by the gendarmerie.
