A 40 year-old worker has died of injuries sustained at a home under construction when the ground around a stairwell he was digging out collapsed on him. Neighbours attempted to get the man out, but were unsuccessful. Toronto Fire Service was called and extricated the man. Paramedics performed CPR on the man as he was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries. The worker later succumbed to his injuries. The Ministry of Labour is investigating.
