On Tuesday, Seoul police said two workers were crushed to death when a 47-metre steel structure and heavy equipment fell from an entrance ramp that was under construction at Seoul’s Banghwa bridge.

Another worker was wounded while a fourth was unhurt. All four labourers held Chinese nationality.

Two weeks ago, seven workers – three of them Korean-Chinese – died after being trapped in a flooded underground water distribution reservoir in Noryangjin.

Korean-Chinese labourers often take dirty and dangerous jobs shunned by South Koreans and work in poor conditions without proper safety training. That’s because most are believed to be working illegally, local media reported following the recent deaths.
