A miner has died after falling off a crane at KCM’s Nchanga Smelter in Chingola.

The miner, identified as Gabbicas Siachipula, 42, of Chiwempala, fell off the crane as he was fixing a roof at the smelter, Copperbelt Deputy Police commissioner Wamunyima Wamunyima has confirmed.

The deceased sustained a cut on the head and bruises on both legs.
