Sept. 10: Two Workers Killed Working on Sewer Lines
Two workers fell about three and a half metres and were buried in the partial collapse of a sewer line. A third worker called emergency crews to the site. They were able to pull one worker out, but he was dead when he arrived at the hospital. Noxious fumes made it difficult to extricate the second worker, who died at the scene, but a farmer with equipment was able to pull him to the surface.
