Man dies at Amazon construction site

Construction workers in Ohio and their friends and family members know that the construction industry is one that is full of hazards. It is for this reason that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration develops a detailed set of safety regulations and protocols. Individual contracting companies are supposed to provide safety training and monitor jobsites to ensure that all safety processes are properly adhered to.

Sadly, safety is not always the priority for some reason. In these situations, accidents can and do occur. All across the Midwest, workers face injury or even death in these events. Today, OSHA and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources are investigating a fatal incident that claimed the life of an expectant father for a reason at this point not known.

According to a report by CBS58.com, the worker was driving an all-terrain vehicle on a high floor of a building. The ATV was somehow allowed to be driven out an open window, leaving the man to plummet approximately 40 feet to the ground. He initially survived the horrific fall and was transported to a hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, he died while at the hospital. The man was only 24 years old.

The accident occurred in the middle of a Wednesday morning at a building being erected to serve as a fulfillment center for the online retailer, Amazon. The investigation will hopefully provide details about the incident and any potential safety violations that may have contributed to the untimely and unnecessary death of a young man at work.
