Sept. 15: Construction Worker Dies from Fall into River
A 44-year-old construction employee was killed in an incident at a worksite at the Champlain Bridge. The platform he was on suddenly overturned, causing him to fall into the river. Although the worker had been wearing a safety harness during two previous descents on the same platform, it’s unclear whether he was wearing a harness when the platform overturned. CSST is investigating the incident with the cooperation of SQ and TNT.
