Construction Accident Kills 54-year-old Worker

Last week, a construction accident claimed the life of a subcontractor who was doing HVAC work for a Wal-Mart Supercenter. The 54-year-old worker was applying sealant to a ceiling duct when he apparently fell off the ladder, hitting his head on the concrete floor. There were no witnesses to the fatal accident; however, another worker found the victim lying on the floor bleeding from the head.

Following the accident, the subcontractor was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An EMS crew reportedly told police he had suffered a severe brain bleed.

Falling from a ladder is just one of the possible hazards that workers face. Other risks include on-site explosions, fires, welding accidents, electrical shock accidents, and motor vehicle accidents. These can result in death or serious, life-altering injuries.
