SeMo Construction Worker Injured in Accident

JANUARY 26, 2005 - Posted at 8:05 a.m. CST

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A construction worker is injured after a falling concrete slab struck his lower body in an accident in southeast Missouri.

It happened about 5 p.m. yesterday at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.  That's where Alberici Constructors of St. Louis is helping build a new parking garage.

Fire officials say an Alberici crane was moving a prefabricated concrete slab into place on the third floor when the crane tipped forward.  The concrete slab dropped, striking the worker in the lower extremities.

The worker was taken to a hospital.  Authorities, citing medical privacy restrictions, are not releasing the man's name or condition.

The garage will be inspected for structural damage.
