(Real Characters Withheld-The People In Picture Do Not Represent The Real Characters In Actual Event!)
A friend of mine who was a truck driver told me an uninformative incidence which happened to his friend. As a truck driver, he used to carry sand at the of their truck from one site to another. Apparently, that was the job they were doing to get money.
One fateful day, he and his friend decided to stay over at the site, and sleep over to the following morning, since they had to carry sand from the site to a different location, early that following morning.
My friend Kofi, said to me that they were a group of 4 friends. That evening, while at the site, they chatted, ate, and played for a while, and all dispersed to go and find a place to sleep, in wait of following days business.
As you’ll often find about these heavy truck drivers, you’ll find them sleep in inside the car, or very close to the car-sometimes, underneath or behind.
The day rose with sadness, but bright for the boys, when they got up that early morning to feed the back of their truck with sand, with another truck offloading sand into their main heavy truck!
Unfortunately, this fourth boy (friend) was sleeping inside the back of their truck, and was very deeply asleep.
While the 3 friends did not know he was sleeping in this deep container of the truck, they’d lowered leap of sand on him, till the back of the site was full.
Here they were, searching out everywhere, behind, below and away from the truck, to see where their fourth friend was.
But he was far buried under the sand, behind the back of their truck. Apparently, he was screaming and fighting his way out when the first heap of sand was poured upon him, but the noise of trucks and workings, on the camp site, distracted everyone from hearing. At a point, they decided to abandon the search, and go and dump the heap of sand, and then, continue with the search, upon their return.
Upon arriving at this site, 2 friends got down from the truck and went behind the back of the car, to direct the driver upon reverse.
There, they got the specified location, and tipped the back of the truck.
The sand poured from the back slowly, and suddenly left a package on its heap. That was their brother; dead, or lifeless.
It was a river of tears, that flowed from everyone’s eyes!
They’re friend was gone!
It was a sad news!!!
The Story Lessons:
a) We’ve said time and time again, that C.E.Os, construction managers and workers of companies should make sure everybody leaves for home immediately they close, from work! Yes, don’t approve them on staying on the site, as nobody will be there for their rescue if something should happen.
b) Even if it should happen, we must make sure everyone reports himself, at the restrooms.
c) Now, never go anywhere around the camp, without telling anyone where you’re going; now, if possible, go in twos or threes, and make sure your boss (or your heads), know where you’re going. and make sure that’s where you’re going, so that in case of any case they can truck you up easily!
