LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK TWP., N.J. – Another New Jersey construction accident killed a worker this week after a wall collapsed on Nauro Ramos-Ramirez in Lower Alloways Creek Township.
Police said Nauro Ramos-Ramirez, 22, of Bridgeton was working on a house remodel in Salem County when a foundation wall collapsed, trapping Ramos-Ramirez under the debris of the home on Maskells Mill Road.
Nauro Ramos-Ramirez was working for DeWitt Concrete and Masonry Inc. of Bridgeton, according to police. Although no charges were filed, police said the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will conduct a full investigation of the incident.
