Placeholder Image

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified of the death of a worker Wednesday morning at the EFACEC plant under construction at the Effingham Industrial Park.

Effingham County Sheriff's deputies were called out to the site just before 8:30 a.m. after an adult Hispanic male was injured in an accident. The male, whose name is being withheld until the next of kin can be notified, was taken to a local hospital but was pronounced dead.

The accident is the first major work-related incident at the site since work began late last fall.
