A construction worker was killed on Friday in an incident at a building site in Plymouth.

WCCO reports that the accident happened just before 4 p.m. at a home under construction on Brockton Lake, and it's understood he wasn't working alone at the time.

Although initially it wasn't clear whether he suffered from a medical emergency or died from an on-site accident, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed his cause of death on Saturday.

Larry Wayne Secord, 56, of Zimmerman, Minnesota, died from head and chest injuries "from a construction accident," the examiner said.

Construction deaths

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there have been nine workplace fatalities (not including Fridays) reported in Minnesota in 2016.

There were 16 reported in total in 2015.

In 2014, around 20 percent of the total workplace deaths happened in construction, with calls, electrocution, being struck by an object, and being caught in/in between machinery the most common causes.
