British man dies and another is seriously hurt following ‘incident’ on Qatar oil rig

A British man has died and another is seriously injured after an ‘incident’ on a Qatar oil rig.

It is believed the men worked for a Scottish company working with remotely operated vehicles.

Colleagues said the worker was found dead in his room, while the other is now fighting for his life in hospital.

Police were flown to the rig via helicopter and locked it down while they carry out their investigations.

One worker told The Sun: ‘Everyone in the industry is talking about this.

‘I can’t get my head round it. I’ve never heard of anything like it in my life.

‘When someone goes to work they’re supposed to come home. This is horrific.’

A Foreign Office spokesman said: ‘We are supporting the family of a British man who has died and a man who has been injured in Qatar and are in contact with the local authorities.’
