May 23, 2017 (Koror, Palau) On Tuesday afternoon, a call was received by Patrol Dispatcher Desebel that an incident has occurred at the Marine Resource Development Center in Malakal.  


According to Firefighters Omelau and Adelbai  who responded to the scene,  a 25 year old male Bangladesh national named Sumon has fallen from the roof top of aquaculture building.

Expecting possible spinal injury, Mr. Sumon was secured with cervical collar or neck brace and transported to ER.   Case still under investigation.

This case will make two such cases of Bangladeshi nationals being injured on construction job sites.  One who sustained serious leg fracture is still hospitalized.

Marine Resource Development Center is being torn down and replaced with a larger more modern marine resource center.  The facility is a $6 million dollar project funded by grant from Japan to help support Palau’s developing aquaculture industry. [/restrict]
