An Indian worker died after a crane he was operating at a construction site collapsed in Sharjah emirate of the UAE.

The 23-year-old crane operator, identified as KR, was moving construction material to the fifth floor when suddenly the crane went crashing down, apparently due to overloading or some technical glitch in the machinery, media reports said.

The accident happened on Friday.

The police reached the spot and transferred the victim's body to Kuwaiti Hospital.

Further investigations into the incident are on, the Khaleej Times reported.
