Last Friday morning, a construction superintendent died in an accident. Emergency responders were paged at about 10am after a man was reportedly electrocuted. Brady Meier was overseeing the base area construction project and was pronounced dead at 12:45am at Yampa Valley Medical center.
Authorities said they are awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death, but they believe Meier might have been struck with a fitting from a pressurized water line. The owner of Duckels Construction said Meier was trying to turn on a water valve inside a utility vault when a compression on another water line blew off and hit him. Meier had worked for the company for two years prior to the construction accident.
Officials from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration plan to investigate the fatal accident.
