Burton, Michigan – A construction worker died while he was working at N. Belsay Road y E. Potter Road.
The accident happened last Tuesday, November 21, at about 10 p.m., when the construction worker was trapped in a hole full of water. A 400-pound, 12-inch main water valve was disconnected from the water pipe, causing the worker’s hole to fill up too quickly with water.
