(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Gyu-bin Hong = Some of the bereaved families strongly objected when the police’s tentative conclusion that the fire extinguishing agent leak occurred at the construction site of the Knowledge Industry Center in Geumcheon-gu, Seoul was the result of the operation of the fire extinguishing system of the deceased worker.

In a statement sent to Yonhap News on the 27th, the bereaved family member A said, “It seems that the police are conducting an investigation that shifts the responsibility to the deceased. Shouldn’t it be,” he said.

“I think it’s an investigation announcement that shifts responsibility to the deceased without revealing evidence to the media,” he said.

A is a family member of one of the field workers who died in the accident.

The day before, after conducting a joint detailed investigation, the police said, “We concluded that the leak was caused by manual manipulation.” “The possibility of manipulation by a worker (dead) working near the manual control box at the time is the most likely situation.”

It is highly probable that one in three workers killed in the accident has pressed the fire alarm switch that activates the fire extinguishing system.

However, it has not yet been confirmed who the worker was among the three or whether he intentionally pushed the switch.

The police said, “We will investigate the cause and circumstances of the operator’s manipulation of the manual operation box and investigate the accident.” The final result of the joint investigation is expected to come out in four weeks.

At this construction site, at 8:52 am on the 23rd, a large amount of carbon dioxide contained in 123 bottles of fire extinguishing equipment weighing 58 kg and capacity of 87 liters leaked, killing three people.
