A construction worker was killed today in New York while working at the site of a future water treatment plant.
The man was working on an underground intake tunnel at the time of the accident. He was operating a boring machine, and, as some have speculated, was killed when a piece of the machine hit him in the head. The man died an hour and a half after the accident occurred. Officials are still investigating what exactly caused the man's death.
Work at the construction site has been stopped and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is conducting its own investigation into the accident.
