The Dietikon district court found two construction workers guilty of negligent homicide on Thursday. A third suspect was acquitted.

Mason apprentice Yves Radakovits (†15) from Geroldswil ZH was killed by several concrete slabs in December 2019 in a tragic construction site accident in Dietikon ZH. The first convict is a 70-year-old Kosovar Albanian, who was a foreman and crane operator at the time. According to the indictment, he used the crane to unload the concrete elements, which weighed more than two tons, onto the construction site. To prevent them from tipping over, he leaned them against a material container. But later he lifted the container away again and placed four elements vertically – without securing them. At the same time he was responsible for the apprentice Yves. He should have avoided putting himself in danger at work.
