A London worker died after being crushed by a urinal

To decrease public urination, telescopic urinals were erected in the neighborhood about 20 years ago. They are underground during the day and rise to street level at night.

At Cambridge Circus in the West End theater district of London, a worker who was performing maintenance work was crushed by a telescoping urinal on Friday afternoon, according to police.

The man who was gravely hurt in Cambridge Circus was pronounced dead at the scene, despite the efforts of rescue responders, the Metropolitan Police reported on Twitter.

According to authorities, the man’s family has been informed.

According to BBC News, telescopic urinals were installed in the region 20 years ago. They are underground during the day and lift hydraulically at night to decrease street urination.

After the unidentified man became entrapped beneath the urinal, more than twenty-first responders worked using a winch to pull him out.

In a statement, a member of Westminster City Council said, “Our thoughts and sincere sympathies are with the friends and family of the worker who unfortunately died earlier today at this site in the West End,” according to BBC. “We have been on the scene helping our contractor and the emergency services, and we will help with whatever inquiries we can,” the statement reads.

Near the Palace Theater, which is now showing “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the incident took place.
