Worker killed in Mississauga, Ontario by forming panel
A 26-year-old concrete worker from Kitchener, Ont. was recently killed in a hoisting incident at a Mississauga-area construction site.
The Ministry of Labour is currently investigating the incident that occurred June 1, at an expansion project at the Lakeview Water Treatment Plant.

A hook came free during the hoist and the panel fell on the Able Concrete worker, reports the ministry. It has been reported by other media that the deceased is Brian Higgins.
