According to WKRN-TV, a worker was killed in a construction accident on Franklin Limestone Road in Nashville on September 21.
The network reported that a 44-year-old man died at Southland Brick and Block while operating a piece of equipment. Metro Police are still investigating the incident. Investigators said that it appears as though the victim leaned over the equipment, into a dangerous zone and was crushed by the machine as it was pushing a piece of block onto a conveyor belt.
The victim’s coworkers allegedly attempted to perform CPR on him, but he died at the scene of the incident.
