A fatal construction accident that occurred last month in Ozaukee County is being investigated by local officials and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The tragic accident occurred at the Mequon Country Club at around 2:40 p.m. on Friday, January 27.
A 27-year old construction worker from Racine was performing carpentry work on the roof of a building at the country club when he fell. Authorities are not sure of what caused the man to fall, and have not reported if he was wearing a safety harness. Paramedics pronounced the worker–whose identity has not been released–dead at the construction site.
Our utmost sympathies go out to the victim’s family and friends.
