A horrific accident has taken place on an East Perth construction site, claiming the lives of 2 young Irish workers.
The accident happened on Wednesday as a crane was hoisting a concrete slab, the slab fell and crushed the 2 workers.
The family of one of the workers Gerard Bradley described the ‘great void’ his death would leave in their lives.
Colleagues and friends of the workers on the site were left in shock by the sudden accident.
There are a large number of Irish workers in Australia, many of them involved in construction work.
