Inquest begins into Ben Catanzariti's construction site death

ln court justice

Almost five years on from the tragic death of Canberra concrete worker Ben Catanzariti, an inquest has begun in the ACT Coroners Court.

In July 2012, 21-year-old Catanzariti was working for Belconnen Concrete on the Kingston foreshore when a boom fell and struck the back of his head.

The inquest has heard the concrete pouring machine was new, and the bolts connecting the boom to the machine failed resulting in a "loud, awful crack" before Mr Catanzariti was hit.

The case will return on September 28 and 29.
