Construction worker seriously hurt in Westmount landslide
A 34-year-old construction worker is in critical condition after a landslide crushed him at a Westmount job site.
The man was buried by earth after a wall that was built specifically to prevent soil from sliding gave way.
His co-workers successfully pulled him out, but the man suffered serious injuries to his upper and lower extremities, said UrgencesSanté Chief of Operations Marc-AndréGagnon.
Quebec's workplace health and safety board is on site investigating the incident.
Correction: A previous version of this story quoted Marc-André Gagnon as saying the construction worker had died. He is not dead, but is in critical condition.
