Tigar Tyres expressed the deepest and sincere condolences over Panic'c death, pledging to provide all necessary assistance and support to the family of the late colleague.
The workers who suffered the most severe injuries were transported to the university clinic in Bochum, Germany, where the doctors are still fighting to save the life of Dejan Mladenovic.
Their colleague Dragan Sokolovic passed away on Sunday from internal lung injuries caused by high-temperature gases.
Last Thursday, six workers sustained injuries in the so-called prep room of the rolling plant, the cause of the accident being an electric shock.
