SHADELAND, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a construction worker has died after a concrete delivery truck tipped over into the pit for an in-ground swimming pool near Lafayette.
The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department says emergency crews were called Wednesday morning to a home in the community of Shadeland and needed about 20 minutes to free the trapped worker.
Sheriff's Lt. Ron Saiph tells the Journal & Courier that the worker was inside the hole for the in-ground pool when the ground gave way and the concrete truck tipped onto its side into the pit.
The worker was pronounced dead at the scene. His name wasn't immediately released.
