Recovery is Made in Construction Fatal Accident
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the body of a construction worker has been pulled this morning from the Cimarron River near Mannford. The heavy equipment operator was working on the Highway 48 bridge project when his excavator fell into the water about six last night.
The OHP Dive Team and the U-S Army Corp of Engineers searched through the night. The body of 36-year-old Edwardo Garcia was recovered before day break this morning in about ten feet of water.
OSHA will take over the investigation.
