Polish officials say a worker died and a second was injured in a crane accident at the construction site of a major stadium going up in Warsaw for the 2012 European football championship.

Pawel Fratczak, the national spokesman for firefighters in Poland, says the accident occurred when a lift on the crane crashed to the ground from a height of about 15 metres (50 feet).

He said one man was killed immediately and the second was unconscious and taken to a hospital.
