Amazon employee dies following incident at Swansea warehouse

An incident occurred on September 20, resulting in the loss of an Amazon worker’s life while on duty at the Ffordd Amazon site off Fabian Way, Swansea. Despite being rushed to Morriston Hospital, the individual ultimately succumbed to their injuries.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called on September 20 at 11.39pm to reports of an incident at Ffordd Amazon, Swansea. We sent two emergency ambulances and one Cymru high-acuity response unit paramedic to the scene. One person was taken to Morriston Hospital for further treatment.”

In response to this event, the company has announced its commitment to conducting a comprehensive investigation.

Amazon, the prominent online retail corporation, inaugurated its expansive 832,000 square foot fulfilment center in Swansea Bay back in 2007.

An Amazon spokesperson issued the following statement: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with our employee’s family and friends at this sad time. 

“We’re providing support to his colleagues at the site and also conducting a thorough investigation.”
