I hated to hear this on the news! He was so young and likely just out of high school - probably not very experienced at working at a construction site I pray for his family.

I was sorry to hear it on the news, as well. I did want to post it since someone on the board may know the family

The only good thing to come out of it is that, apparently, they are using local contractors. I've posted about construction jobs out here that must come to a total of close to a thousand jobs, & had only 2 people contact me, so I almost never post them anymore. It gets discouraging. This is not a reasonable commute for everyone, but it's doable for a lot of people in the metro.
