Worker crushed to death at construction site

OCALA — An Orlando construction worker died after a heavy metal beam fell on him at an Ocala site.

Ocala Fire Rescue reports that 40-year-old Victor Lizarraga was attaching a safety cable to the beam Friday morning when it fell.

He was working for Metal-Bilt Construction LLC, an Orlando-based subcontractor on the commercial construction project.

Officials say Lizarraga and others were attempting to erect two I-beams outside when one of the 35-foot tall beams fell.

The beam was estimated to weigh about 1,500 pounds.
