Lighthouse Club Macau Donations in 2020

1) Fatal accident in Taipa, Macau on 08 December 2020 (Case 80)

On 08 December 2020, a 50 year old PRC worker died whilst installing timber shoring in an excavation, but the excavation suddenly collapsed and the worker was buried alive. He left a 75 year old father, a wife with no job and a 16 year old son. Lighthouse Club Macau donated MOP70,000 to the wife on 15 December 2020.

 

2) Serious Injury in Coloane, Macau on 06 September 2020 (Case 79)

On 06 September 2020, a self-employed worker fell from 

the second floor balcony while doing repair work in Coloane village. He was in a coma but has since recovered. The tragic part of this case was that the worker’s son died a few days later on 09 September 2020 due to heart failure.

Since the injured worker was self-employed he was not covered by employee compensation insurance. Lighthouse Club Macau donated MOP70,000 to the wife on 11 September 2020 (see photo).

 

3) Fatal accident in Macau on 19 May 2020 (Case 75)

On 19 May 20, a self employed local worker was carrying out some household repair work in an apartment in Macau. He accidentally fell from the apartment balcony

and was seriously injured and underwent six days in the hospital ICU, but unfortunately did not survive. He is survived by his wife, but no children.

As the worker was self employed, he had no employment compensation insurance and his wife spent MOP180,000 for 6 days ICU medical care for her husband from her own pocket.

In investigating the case we heard that in 2004 the same worker fell from a third floor to the ground and was badly hurt. He underwent medical treatment for one year.

Unfortunately, in the case of the second accident he was not so lucky.

On Saturday 13 Jun 2020, Lighthouse Club Macau presented the wife of the deceased a cheque for MOP70,000 (see photo).

This case is a good example of Safety Training being essential for self employed worker who take risks in carrying out their work,and probably lack any formal safety training.

7) Serious Injury in Macau on 21 November 2019 (Case 74)

This concerns a very sad case which happened in Macau in November 2019. The case was referred to Lighthouse Club Macau by Macau Construction Association. It seemed that the case was not reported in the press. A PRC worker fell to the ground from the structure of a flyover near the Olympic Stadium in Taipa.

After surgery the patient has been in a vegetative state ever since. The hospital advised there is not much treatment can be done. The patient needs 24 hours close monitoring and care.

He is only 41 years old and has three children aged 8 – 11 years. Due to the Corvid-19 situation and travel restrictions the wife had been unable to see her children since November 2019.

Lighthouse Club Macau donated MOP70,000 and continued to support her and the family with certain payments for a further year.
