At least one person has been killed, and another injured, following an accident at a port in northeastern Brazil.

An accident on Tuesday at a port in northeastern Brazil run by miner Vale SA killed one worker and injured another, the company said in a note on Wednesday.

Vale said the pair worked for an external company hired to erect scaffolding on pier 1 of the Ponta da Madeira terminal in the state of Maranhao.

One of the workers died upon reaching hospital, while the other is no longer in a critical condition.
