Act First Safety

One man has died and another was critically injured in an accident at a construction site which occurred yesterday morning in Markham.

The two men were working at a construction site when a skyjack scissor lift they were operating tipped over.  The lift was 25 feet in the air before it fell. Police are still unsure whether both men were inside the elevating work platform while it fell.  One man was pronounced dead at the scene while the other was air lifted to the hospital.  The Ministry of Labour and the York Region Police are investigating the incident.
