A worker at peene shipyard in Wolgast, Germany, was fatally injured after colliding with sharp metal plates while riding his bike through a shipyard workshop. The incident occurred on Sunday evening around 10:20 p.m. when a worker at the Peene shipyard called for emergency services to report an industrial accident on the premises. The worker, a 40-year-old German, was reportedly on his way to a manufacturing hall on the shipyard with a colleague when he rode his bike through the hall to turn on the lights. He failed to see a trailer with sharp metal plates stacked on it and collided with the trailer, sustaining severe cuts to his neck. He managed to call for help from his colleague, who called the police and ambulance and began administering first aid. When the ambulance arrived, the doctor was only able to confirm the 40-year-old's death. The Anklam criminal police are now investigating.
