Construction Worker Dies at IBM Site
The accident happened just after 10 a.m. on Tuesday. The Kansas City man died between 12:30 and 1 p.m. There is not much information about what exactly happened at this early stage in the investigation.
OSHA began its inspection of the site around 3 p.m. and told KOMU the investigation could take up to six months. An OSHA official said Embley was fixing a roof when he fell.
Little Dixie Construction Company was working on the site.
Spokesman Dale Dickensen told KOMU it's now off limits to anyone other than workers or investigators. He said this accident is sensitive, not just because of the tragedy, but also because the IBM announcement is so new.
OSHA hopes to have more information by the end of the week.
