A woman has died after a wall collapsed at a residential construction site south of Calgary.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Highway 22X and 192nd Street West, near the hamlet of Priddis, shortly before 9 a.m. MT.

"Upon arrival at the scene, it appears that a second-storey wood framed wall had fallen on a worker," RCMP said in a press release.

"There is nothing to indicate that there was anything criminal about this incident with initial indications being that this is a work place accident."

The woman, who has not been named, was in her 30s.

Occupational Health and Safety will be investigating, say RCMP.
