A worker who was crushed by a mobile home east of London earlier this week has succumbed to his injuries.
The incident happened at Golden Pond RV Resort in Mossley on Monday morning.
A spokesperson with Ontario’s Ministry of Labour says it was reported the worker was using a jack to lift the trailer when it shifted, fell, and pinned the worker underneath.
Emergency services attended the scene and the victim was taken to hospital. The Ministry was informed Thursday morning that the worker had died as a result of his injuries.
A ministry inspector and engineer attended the scene on Tuesday and issued orders to the employer to maintain equipment in good condition, to stop using the jack, and to move the mobile home in a manner so that it will not injure a worker.
Ministry spokeswoman Janet Deline tells AM980 it’s too soon to say if charges will be laid as the investigation is ongoing.
“We’re still under an investigation for the health and safety purpose. Once the investigation is complete, the inspectors report then gets reviewed and at that time it’s determined whether or not charges will be laid under the Occupational Health and Safety Act,” said Deline.
The victim’s identity is not being released by the Ministry of Labour.
