Appeal For Witnesses To Dublin Industrial Accident

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses to an industrial accident in Dublin's Wilton Terrace.

A 30 year-old man suffered serious injuries during the incident on Tuesday 14 January. He is currently receiving treatment in St Vincent's Hospital, Dublin.

It's reported that the injured party had been asleep in a tent in the canal area when a council clean-up vehicle removed it, causing him to suffer "life-changing" injuries.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the accident or any road users who may have camera footage to contact Gardaí at Pearse Street on 01 666 9000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
