A company and its leaders will be tried after the accidental death of a gardener


The scene shocked all the witnesses. While the replacement players trotted on the lawn of a deserted Moustoir in this period of pandemic, a man had lost his life before their eyes. Yohann, 36, was a volunteer for the Sportingsols company, where his brother worked. That evening in December 2020, the father of three was crushed by the fall of a light therapy ramp used to heat and repair the lawn after Stade Rennais won over FC Lorient. The Rennes replacements alerted the emergency services, to no avail.

The Lorient public prosecutor’s office has just announced that the sports flooring maintenance company and two of its managers will be tried on September 19 in Lorient. “The SNC Sportingsols Interview is accused of manslaughter by a legal person, in the context of work,” said Stéphane Kellenberger, the public prosecutor of Lorient.

The Vendée company, a subsidiary of the Papin group, will also be tried for “the offense of performing concealed work against several people, the offense of providing workers with work equipment without information or training. , in addition to the offense of providing workers with work equipment that does not allow their safety to be preserved, ”according to the same source.

Three employees mobilized for each match

The victim was the brother of a member of the Sportingsols team, the club’s lawn care provider. For each match, three company employees responsible for maintaining the lawn could each invite a relative. At half-time, the volunteer could tread the lawn to help rehabilitate clods of earth, to fill in the holes, according to a spokesperson for the company interviewed at the material time.

Many tributes had been paid to Yohann, in particular by FC Lorient, or the neighboring club of Concarneau where his brother Tristan Boubaya plays.
