2 killed in construction accident

In Ohio, there is always construction going on, whether it's sunny, raining or snowing. The roads are usually being worked on, and new buildings are being erected. Most of the workers will remain safe during these long days of work, but workers aren't always protected against mishaps. According to the news, a construction accident has led to the deaths of two men. The men were working out of state in Texas when the accident occurred, according to the news.

The nature of the accident was severe, according to the news. The accident took place just off I-37 and Southern Minerals. Emergency workers claim that the metal roofing of the construction site collapsed around 2:00 p.m. Workers claimed that they heard a loud boom when the roof of a tank the men were working on collapsed. Two people were inside the tank when it collapsed and that trapped the men inside.

At the moment, the OSHA is investigating to find out why the roof collapsed. It may have to do with a scaffolding failure, according to the news cast. The workers' bodies were recovered, according to the news, but they have not been identified.

These kinds of wrongful deaths can usually be avoided. It's actually fortunate that no one else was hurt or killed in this construction accident. If you've lost a loved one or been hurt while working on the job, you may want to look into your legal options; there are ways to seek compensation for the loss of a loved one or for the injuries you're suffering from.
