A few days ago, the city of Bergen welcomed the success of the first spring festival. The Ferris wheel had even welcomed nearly 10,000 visitors. Unfortunately, the festive event ends tragically.
On Tuesday afternoon a worker died during the dismantling operation. The rescue services arrived in numbers: police, firefighters, paramedics … Unfortunately they could not do anything to save the victim, a man who would be 38 years old. It even dropped a few meters.
The labor court has already been informed of the facts. A replacement is on site. Scene witnesses will also be heard at the auditor's request.
It is with great emotion and sorrow that on Tuesday afternoon 30 the mayor and town hall learned about the death of Denis Delforge, demonstrating the big wheel he had installed on the Grote Markt in Bergen since April 5.
Denis Delforge was an experienced and passionate showman. He came from a large family of entertainers known and respected by everyone, all over the country.
He had been preparing for his visit to Bergen for several months and enjoyed it. His presence in our city was also a great success and, rightly, Denis Delforge welcomed it.
"Denis told me again on Sunday how happy he was with his presence in Mons and we were already preparing new projects. He had his heart to hand and offered many places to associations, especially for disadvantaged children in the region. I am personally very touched by his death and express my sincere condolences and that of the municipal college to his family, whom I have known for a long time, "said Bourgmestre Nicolas Martin.
Mons parquet flooring had to descend on site. An investigation was opened to determine the causes of the accident. For the time being, the thesis of the accident will be saved.
