Many people in California are unaware of the many risks that construction workers face as they complete their job-related tasks. Because of the size of the equipment and the potential for falls, construction accidents often leave family members coping with the unexpected loss of a loved one. One out-of-state family is likely coming to terms with such a situation after a crane overturned at a construction site, killing one worker.
A representative for the fire department says that the accident happened one morning on a day in late January. Workers were reportedly working to set cement walls. Unfortunately, a crane apparently fell over into one of the walls, knocking it over. A worker, who is described as being in his twenties, died in the accident.
