A teenager from Souris, P.E.I. died Thursday in an industrial accident on a job site in Alberta.
Ian McIntosh, said his nephew, Jordan White, had been working out west for the last year.
The accident happened early Thursday afternoon.
"A 19 year old man was crushed by a ramp as he was moving the ramp during a rig-move," said Brookes Merritt, a spokesperson for Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Branch. "He was determined deceased at the scene so occupational safety investigators are currently investigating and that will be ongoing."
White was an employee of Nabours Drilling. The company was contracted by the Harvest Energy Group.
The incident occurred on the Black Gold job site near Conklin, Alberta.
McIntosh said Jordan White's father, Francis, was also working in Alberta when he found out his son had died.
"Another uncle was back out working and the mother's youngest sister lives in Fort McMurray," said McIntosh. "When they got the news, they went and got the father at his camp and took him back to Fort McMurray. The whole family is still in shock."
White's body will be brought back to Prince Edward Island early next week.
"He was just a fun-loving kid and we're all going to miss him," said McIntosh. "He just loved cars and girls. He was just your average, typical 19 year old."
