WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a construction worker has died after he was apparently struck by a piece of rock near a building in Massachusetts.

The Middlesex district attorney’s office says the man in his 30s had been working Tuesday at Woburn City Library, which is undergoing a renovation. He was apparently hit by a piece of rock that had “broken free.”

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

W.L French Excavating, a subcontractor on the project, says the victim worked for the Schnabel Foundation Company, which is located in Southborough.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and state police are investigating.


This story has been corrected to show that the victim was not an employee of W.L French Excavating, as officials had stated.
