Four labourers were killed in two separate incidents after soil at a construction site and stones at a quarry caved-in in Jajpur district of Odisha.

They were laying pipelines for a construction company late on Wednesday when a pile of earth collapsed in on them, killing them.

Locals saved the laborers, who were then hurried to the community health center in Binjharpur. They were later taken to Jajpur's district hospital, where they were pronounced deceased.

A man was buried under a mound of stones on Wednesday night during quarrying operations at the Dankari stone quarry in the Dharmashala block of the same district.

When the accident occurred, an Andhra Pradeshi contractor was using excavators to help in stone quarrying. It is thought that two additional laborers are stuck beneath the stones.
