A wall collapse at an elementary school construction site has killed a 57-year-old construction worker. A gust of wind apparently blew over a cement block wall under construction, falling on the construction accident victim.
The area was experiencing severe thunderstorms at the time of the accident, and various reports showed gusts of up to 50 mph. Workers called it a freak accident.
The fatal construction accident occurred in Blairsburg, Ohio at 12:03pm Friday afternoon. Officials from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be investigating the incident.
