Missing rubbish tip worker presumed dead
Tuesday, May 10, 2005
Family and colleagues of the 40 year old man buried under a mountain of rubbish at a tip in Abanilla have given up any hope of finding him alive now that 75% of the huge pile of rubbish has been removed.
A spokesman for the Proambiente company responsible for the site, Javier Bru, explained that five bulldozers had now removed the majority of the rubbish from the area the man is thought to have gone missing, and that what remains is very tightly compacted.
It has emerged that the accident occurred between 4-4.30am, and seems to have been caused by two minor earth tremors with epicentres in Torrevieja (Alicante) and Sucina (Murcia).
A team of sniffer dogs has been withdrawn from the search operation because the diversity of strong odours at the tip meant they were unable to work effectively.
Hunt on for man buried under rubbish mountain
Monday, May 9, 2005
Around forty people have been involved in the search for a 40 year old man thought to have been buried under a rubbish mountain this morning at a waste treatment plant on the outskirts of Abanilla, near Murcia.
A spokesman for Orihuela Local Police explained that sniffer dogs have also been deployed in the search which began shortly after 7am this morning, and which is complicated by the risk of further subsidence.
Fears are growing for the missing man, a 40 year old father of three who has worked at the plant for a number of years, who has been identified as José Ramón HL.
