MADISON, Wis. (AP) - One man has died in a construction accident in Madison.

Officials say the worker was injured when the masonry at the site collapsed just after 7:30 a.m. Friday. Fire Department spokeswoman Lori Wirth says the man had been working near a stairwell at the rear of the building.

The Dane County Medical Examiner says he died later at UW Hospital.

His name was not immediately released.

The accident happened at the Watermark Lofts, which is scheduled to open this summer with apartments and retail space. It’s being built at the site of a building that was destroyed by a large fire in 2012.
