On Friday, a Boston construction worker was killed at a construction site in the Financial District. The worker, a 31-year-old male, was struck by a brick about 2 feet in size and died at the scene of the construction accident.
According to a spokesman for the Boston Fire Department, firefighters were called to the construction site at 270 Congress Street around 10:08am. Responders tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate the injured worker, who witnesses say was doing excavation work about 10 feet below the surface.
The construction project was 31-story office tower under development by Boston Properties and Moriarty Construction. Workers are also renovating the Tufts Graphic Art building, which is adjacent to the office tower. The construction accident is under investigation.
