Alfie Perrin’s mum Jacqueline admits she didn’t think the worst when a supervisor knocked on her door to tell her he’d had an accident at work.
The 16-year-old, who was training as a carpenter, was working as an apprentice for a local building company in 2012.
Then one day he was told to throw bags of heavy rubbish off a scaffolding into a skip below, but lost his balance.
He fell 30 feet (nine metres) and landed on his back and later died in hospital from a serious brain injury.
Avoid devastating accidents on building sites by ensuring everyone is trained in Health and Safety practices (including apprentices).
