A construction worker suffered major injuries on the job after a scaffolding collapsed on a job site and left him trapped under twisted steel and thick wooden planks. According to a 10News report, the major injury incident occurred at the Office Depot on Highland Avenue in National City, the night of May 1, 2012. Officials say the scaffolding was supporting large wood planks that formed a protective tunnel for the store's entrance. The victim was working underneath when the structure collapsed on him. He was transported to an area hospital and his current condition is unknown. Investigators with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are looking into what caused this scaffolding accident.
My heart goes out to this injured worker and his family. I wish him the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
