A labourer was killed and two others were injured when the trolley attached to a crane got snapped and fell on them here Thursday, police said.
The mishap took place when the crane was being used to dig a well at Maldhon-Shivar village in Sinnar taluka of this North Maharashtra district, they said.
Given scarcity of water in the district, farmers are digging wells at several places.
One such well was being dug at Maldhon-Shivar by a group of labourers.
While the digging work was on, the trolley attached to the crane got suddenly snapped and fell on labourers working 75 feet deep in the pit, injuring three of them, the police said.
One of them, Vishwas Dube (36) died on way to hospital, while two others -- Macchindra Sumbhe (38) and Vithal Dube (36) - were admitted to hospitals in Sinnar and Nashik, they added.
