A construction worker is dead following a workplace accident in East Houston. The accident occurred on a construction site near Normandy Street and the East Freeway on Tuesday morning, at about 11 a.m.
Police say that construction workers were using a trenching machine to dig a hole the time of the accident. The foreman fell into the 20-foot hole as the machine was running, and became trapped within the machine.
Houston emergency crews were then dispatched to the construction site to rescue the worker following the construction accident. The Houston Fire Department reported that upon their arrival, they determined the worker had been killed, and that their trench rescue effort became a recovery effort.
Houston officials are still working to uncover the details surrounding the fatal construction accident.
