Israel’s first workday of 2022 saw two men killed in separate work incidents and another critically injured in a third on Sunday.

A foreign worker, 40, died when he fell from a crane at a building site in Tel Aviv.

The man reportedly fell 40 meters to his death on Yavne Street.

Paramedics who arrived at the scene declared him dead.

In the northern Galilee region, an Israeli man in his 70s died in an olive orchard in Sallama, a Bedouin village. The man was reportedly trapped in a shredding machine. Fire and Rescue Services freed the man but paramedics found him with no vital signs and declared him dead.

The Israel Police opened an investigation into the incident.

Earlier in the day, a worker at another building site on Namir Road in Tel Aviv was critically injured by a passing truck.

Medics who were alerted to the incident found the man lying in the street, unconscious. The man, 51, was rushed to the Ichilov Hospital in the city for treatment.
