Man Ends Up Boiling To Death in Factory

With poor working conditions in the province, over the years, the casualties and deaths caused by such have risen. Recently, a man was boiled to death.

2021 has started off with several deaths in its list, gruesome ones, that is. On Friday, 22nd January a chemical department employee of the sugar mill in Tandlianwala passed away after falling into a hot water pool- leaving the man boiling to death.

Authorities handed over the body to his heirs after the proceedings. Reportedly, 45-year-old Munir Ahmed, son of Abdullah, and a resident of Chak No 447GB, Sammundri, was an employee in the chemical department of a local sugar mill in Tandlianwala tehsil. While working, he fell into a hot water pool and boiled to death. The authorities of the mill handed over the body of the deceased to the descendants. Such casualties have been reported several times in those areas due to a lack of safety measures.

Apart from the man boiling to death, on January 8, at least three laborers were burnt alive in an incident of fire in a furnace oil factory in the Rana Town area of Sheikhupura district. The fire reportedly erupted because of an explosion in a boiler, and all of a sudden it turned into humongous flames. A caller intimated Rescue 1122 about the fire and said that two or three persons of the staff were missing. The area is around 10 kilometers away from Shahdara, Lahore, and some 50 km from Sheikhupura city. The Rescue 1122 teams were dispatched from Lahore and Sheikhupura.

At least 30 Rescuers and 10 Rescue 1122 vehicles participated in the rescue operation which was led by District Emergency Officer Sheikhupura (DEO) Rana Ejaz. The rescuers first tried to evacuate the victims and bodies after they reached the site. They launched the search operation and evacuated three bodies. The bodies were shifted to a morgue. Due to the fire, a portion of the factory building collapsed. Reportedly, highly combustible material and furnace oil were present inside the factory in huge quantities. On June 8 last year, a boiler explosion at an oil refinery in Thikriwala, Faisalabad killed 6 people. There is no doubt that the working conditions in the province are questionable, people have been dying due to poor management and lack of standards and maintenance which have led to several casualties such as the man boiling to death.

In this particular rescue mission, the roofs of the rooms also collapsed. The incident resulted in some of the workers escaping the scene while the rest were engulfed in the fire which resulted in the death of six laborers. The deceased included 21-year-old Shahadat, a resident of Chiniot, Raja Naeem son of Afzal, resident of Dhok Mona, Jhelum, Faryad, son of Mazhar Hussain, resident of Chak No 251GB, Mochiwala, Jhang, Zahid, son of Sharif and resident of Sardarpur, Kabirwala tehsil, Khanewal district, Hazara Khan, son of Imam and resident of Khairpur and Rashid, son of Latif and resident of DG Khan, apart from the man that was boiled to death.
