According to the reports, the deceased man was fifty-one year old Martinez. He was digging a trench along with another worker at the site of a new car dealership. When a wall collapsed onto the two men. The weight of the wall was around 5,000-6,000 pounds.
The construction company, Kunzik & Sara Construction denied all allegations. They say that the family have not been financially damaged.
One worker somehow managed to escape from the incident and luckily suffered non life threatening injuries. However, Martinez was trapped underneath the wall when it toppled on top of him.
