PLYMOUTH (CBS/AP) — A 27-year-old worker has been killed at a construction site in Plymouth.

Police said the accident occurred Tuesday morning at a residential development called the Pine Hills.

The man was building a wall that would soon be filled with concrete, when suddenly, it collapsed, trapping him under the wood and steel.

He died at the scene.

Authorities did not immediately release the name of the man who died.

Plymouth police and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating.
