Comments Off

A carpenter working on the University of Tennessee’s new aquatic center died after suffering severe head trauma on the worksite. The 53 year old man was found at the base of one of the walls.

The Tennessee office of Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating, according to Milissa Reierson, communications director for TOSHA.

Investigations take 4-6 weeks to complete, she said.

No details have been released about what happened, but police have taken statements from those at the scene and ruled it an accidental death.
