The Ministry of Labour was told he was pinned by a temporary steel bridge which shifted as it was being installed over Angler Creek on Highway17 just west of Marathon.

A ministry inspector was sent to the scene to investigate.

The ministry has issued one order against the company; however, they would not provide any details on what that order entails.
