Sincere condolences to the man’s family, friends and co workers. It will be a sad Christmas for that family.

This is a way too common an occurrence in the ACT. My condolences to his friends and family.

Such a sad thing to happen to this man and for his family and friends as well.

Yes totally agree Brianna. Yet another senseless worksite death.
