A stevedore died after being sandwiched between two cargo containers at the Port of Helsinki on Thursday afternoon.

According to the police, the victim was sandwiched between two containers on the deck at around 3:00 pm and died on the spot.

The police said the stevedore was a Finnish national but did not disclose further details.

The chief fire fighter on duty said the stevedore had already died when the rescue department arrived at the scene.

The director at Vuosaari Harbour Jukka Kallio said the incident happened on a foreign cargo vessel.

According to Kallio, such serious accidents are very rare in the course of work at the dock.

The Helsinki police command centre on Thursday evening said the case is still being treated as an accident.

The police will continue to investigate the cause of the death.
