A tragic end for a Houston man killed in a construction accident in Richmond Tuesday afternoon.
A company was building a “water detention” area near Mission Bend, according to a Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.
The victim was working about 25 feet down in a hole around 1:15 p.m. A crane was lifting a metal “form” when it slipped and struck the victim in the head.
The 28-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
SkyFOX was overhead around 2:30 p.m. The victim’s body could be seen under the shadow of a large, square piece of metal.
Due to the graphic nature of the image, it was not posted with this story.
Investigators are continuing to look over the scene.
