Comments Off

A construction worker on a job site at Fort Bliss in Texas was killed on Friday. The construction accident involved a C.F. Jordan employee and not a member of the military. The victim was hit by a concrete block.

Fort Bliss firefighters responded to the incident, which happened about 9:30 a.m. at a construction site on Biggs Army Airfield. The victim was a 45-year-old man who had been with the company for more than 10 years.

The victim’s name has not been released and there are no further details on why the accident happened. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as base officials, will be investigating the accident.
