Floor collapses under man and machine
A 29 year-old construction worker suffered only minor injuries after he and the machine he was operating fell 18 feet into the basement at a mill building.
The man was moving materials on the first floor of the building with a skid steer when the floor gave way. He was able to stand up and walk away from the accident and was taken to a local hospital as a precaution. The building is currently being redeveloped into commercial spaces and apartments.
OSHA is scheduled to visit the accident site and conduct an investigation to determine if the fall could have been avoided.
