Contractor in fatal stairway collapse on station bail
The contractor who was tasked with building a house at Coldingen, East Coast Demerara (ECD), where teenager Travis Mangra died when a stairway collapsed on Sunday, was released on station bail by the police on Monday night.
Mangra, of Enterprise, ECD, was killed when a stairway collapsed and crushed him as he was removing several ‘form boards’ which kept the structure intact.
According to a source, the contractor, who hails from Canal Number One, West Bank Demerara, was held by the police sometime on Monday. He was kept in custody until late Monday night and was subsequently released on station bail and he is expected to report to the Vigilance Police Station on Friday.
