Our attorneys and staff here at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC were deeply saddened to hear that a worker was killed at the site of the Edgerton High School expansion project on Wednesday when a recently constructed wall blew over as a result of extremely high winds.
The identity of the worker has not yet been released, but authorities have provided that the cause of the accident were the extremely strong winds on Wednesday throughout the day. A burst of high wind blew the newly constructed 10-foot-tall wall over at around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The wall that led to the worker's death was a part of an addition to the high school that was initiated by the local school district to create additional classrooms for kindergarten through eighth grade classes. According to The National Weather Service, this paritcular gust of wind was a "microburst," but certainly not a tornado. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating the accident in the hope of uncovering additional information regarding what happened on Wednesday.
