Builder Attacked With Axe And Buried Alive After Asking For Wages

Builder Attacked With Axe And Buried Alive After Asking For Wages

A Polish builder who asked to be paid was beaten up and dragged into a wood by his boss and a foreman where they tried to chop off his head with an axe and then dug a hole and buried him in the ground when they thought he was dead.

Jobless Dominik Borkovski, 23, from the city of Katowice in south-eastern Poland, had gone to the capital Warsaw looking for work when he was offered a building job by construction company boss Szymon Gorski, 30, and his assistant Mateusz Chmielewski, 22.

He said: "I had worked for them for a few months and my wages kept getting put off, and then I was offered a better job at a different company and I confronted them about being paid what they owed me. But instead he had beaten me up and thrown me into a car and taken me to a forest."

Chmielewski who said he was only acting on what he was told to do by his boss admitted that they had taken the young man to the woods. He said: "We took Dominik to a forest and Szymon told me to end it. I took a cleaver and started hacking him in the neck and the head.

"When he stopped moving, Szymon told me to cover his body with earth and branches which I did and then we left him there."

Incredibly, Dominik had realised that they intended to kill him and had decided to play dead even as they had hacked at his head with a machete leaving horrific injuries.

He said: "I realised that they wanted me dead, and I wouldn't be able to outrun them. The only way out was to play dead and hope that that satisfied them."

After he realised that they had gone, the critically injured young man had brushed away the loose covering of Earth and leaves and crawled back to the main road where he flagged down a passing motorist. He was taken to hospital where doctors managed to save his life although he was in a critical state for a while.

The trial continues.
