Worker dies at Overlook Ridge

April 9, 2007

A Somerville man was killed on Monday while doing masonry work at Roseland’s ongoing Overlook Ridge project in North Revere.
The man’s identity was not being immediately released.
“It was a tragic accident,” said Nancy Sterling, a spokesperson for Roseland. “Apparently, what happened was he was bending over and another employee driving a Bobcat did not see him and backed over him.”
The man was rushed to Mass General Hospital where he died soon after arriving.
Immediately after the accident, the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHA) was on the scene investigating, though a spokesman had no details to offer.
