Carthage, MO -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the death of a worker who died in a strange accident.

The victim was inside a three-sided box that was sitting on the fork of a tractor.  The worker fell out of the box and then the box fell, hitting the victim on the head.  Both the victim and the box were about 11 feet in the air at the time they fell. 

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead later that day.

Both the contractor from El Paso, TX and the General Contractor from St. Louis, MO are being investigated by OSHA in the death of the worker.
