Construction Worker Crushed to Death in El Paso

Construction Worker Crushed to Death in El Paso

A 26-year-old employee of Noe Tapia's Concrete in El Paso, Texas was killed Jan. 22 when crushed by a bull dozer. "Massive internal injuries" was the cause of death, according to El Paso Fire Department spokesperson Lt. Mario Hernandez said.

Noe Tapia, owner of the concrete firm which employed the deceased, said ""We don't know what happened," he said. The man had worked for Tapia for six months. Tapia had been subcontracted by the general contractor, C.F. Jordan, which issued this statement: "We are currently conducting our own investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time."

The fire department's Hernandez added, "He was involved in some kind of industrial accident." Firefighters performed CPR on the man who later was pronounced dead at Thomason Hospital.

Police Department spokesman Officer Chris Mears said no charges were yet filed. "We're still looking into how he died," he said.< FONT>

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) officials were en route to the construction site to conduct an investigation.
