Worker fighting for his life after being buried at job site
A construction worker is in critical condition after being buried under rubble this morning in the Ville Marie borough.
At around 10:30 this morning, the 34-year-old man was doing excavation work on De La Vigne Rd. when he suddenly got buried under a load of dirt and debris.
He remained buried for a little over a minute — and Urgence Santé says some of his colleagues were able to get him out.
The man was conscious when emergency officials arrived and was transported to hospital.
