The family of an eight-year-old boy killed by a crane in a Delhi suburb has celebrated the moment their son’s skull was removed.
The family had been protesting against a construction crane which was set to fall onto their house, injuring the boy, who was in the car.
The crane was being transported by the Delhi High Court, which was also hearing a case on the construction of a new railway line at the site of the accident, and the boy’s father, Piyush, was among those protesting against the crane.
Piyash, a truck driver, was riding a motorbike and had reached the spot when the crane suddenly stopped, trapping him under its weight.
“I did not know what to do.
I shouted at it, and it started moving.
When it stopped, I thought, ‘It is done’,” said Piyatbhai.
1,000,000 of Rs. 8.80 crore donated to the government from the Centre, Delhi Municipal Corporation, Delhi Development Authority and Delhi Government has now been paid out.
“It was just a moment of absolute chaos.
My son was crushed, and his skull was cut open by the crane,” Piyam, who asked not to be identified, told The Times Of India.
“When I looked at the dead body, I could see that it was the skull of my son.
It is a miracle.”
“It is a moment that will live forever in our memory.
I will never forget it.
It will stay in my heart forever.”
A video of the crane’s demise has been posted on YouTube.
“The crane fell on my son,” Pty 1,500,000 (Rs.
3.90 crore) donor Piyabhai Choudhary tweeted on Sunday.
“In the process of removing the crane, the power cable broke and fell on him,” said Pty 2,000.
“He was rushed to a nearby hospital but he died a short time later,” said an official of the Delhi Public Works Department (DPWD) who did not wish to be named.
The DCW spokesperson said the crane was carrying a section of the main road which was damaged by a landslide, causing damage to the pedestrian crossing over the road.
Piedosa Road was blocked for nearly two days after the incident, and was reopened only on Thursday.
The area has been under the jurisdiction of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), which was asked to carry out the safety and mitigation measures to ensure the safety of residents, traffic and the public.
“We are very thankful for all the people who joined us in protesting the crane in our area.
We will continue to fight for the rights of the people of our area,” said Suman, Pty 500,000 donor from Rajasthan.
“Our boy is in the hospital, but we will fight for him,” Piedema said.
Pt. 2,500 (Rs 6.40 crore) Piedo, from Bihar, was one of the protesters in his hometown.
He said the incident was a big loss for his community.
“My community had to suffer because of this crane.
It has ruined our neighbourhood.
We have to continue with our protest, as we do not want any construction to take place,” he said.
“This crane has been in operation for years, but its safety is being seriously questioned,” said Mani, Piedoka’s mother, adding that the family has already spent more than Rs. 5 lakh on the crane to fix the power cables.
