dead worker was found about an hour and a half ago after overnight work?


Yes, it is. Immediately after the accident, the injured were transported to the hospital, but the firefighters searched overnight because one worker at the factory was not found.

Then, about an hour and a half ago, about 4:30, a missing person was found here, unfortunately, reportedly found dead.

Fire officials are currently investigating the cause of the accident, seeing that an explosion occurred while workers were carrying hydrogen peroxide from a mobile tank lorry.

During the 8 o'clock in the morning, on-site identification will be conducted to determine the exact cause of the accident.
