Freak Construction Accident Kills Lynn Man

Earlier this month, an accident on a construction site in Salem, Massachusetts claimed the life of a 39-year-old man. He was killed when a bag filled with gravel fell four stories, landing on top of him. Three workers from a Beverly construction company were working on repairing a roof in downtown Salem when one of the bags fell roughly 60 feet.

According to NECN, emergency medical crews were able to briefly revive the construction accident victim before taking him to Salem hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Firefighters say a bystander across the street saw the bag of gravel falling and tried to prevent the fatal accident. Here in Massachusetts, bystanders who make a good faith effort to assist in an accident, providing emergency care, are protected by Good Samaritan Laws.
