Man killed after falling 30 feet from scaffold

Posted under 040904b1-517b-4331-b9de-781da80bd43f

An electrical worker from Appleton was killed and a co-worker injured
after they fell 30 feet from a  scaffolding at a Howard paper company.

The
41-year-old man that was killed in the accident worked at Faith
Technologies of Menasha. The two workers fell from a scissor-type
scaffolding while working at Hattiesburg Paper Co. At the time of the
accident, the men were performing routine electrical maintenance.

One
man was killed and the other is currently recovering in the hospital.
The incident is currently under investigation and the local and federal
division of OSHA will be looking into it. The plant is closed at this
time.

Construction accidents can happen when least expected and
cause severe injuries, our thoughts are with the friends and family of
the victims.
