Man killed in south shore work accident

A work accident has cost the life of an employee at GSC Technologies in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.

The cause of the accident is not being released, other than it took place around 8:45 Monday evening.

The victim was transported to hospital where doctors pronounced the death.
