How often does a fatal work accident makes the front page of the news? Have we gotten to the point where so many of these accidents occur, that not one of them is sensational enough to rise to levels of public outrage?

I get that construction work carries a higher level of danger than most other jobs. In fact, jobs in the construction industry rate as some of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. The most recent study--2014--conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that 19% of all work related deaths in the U.S. occurred within the construction industry. As of the study, there were 899 fatalities in the construction industry in the U.S for that one year alone.

Let's face it, even considering the sobering statistics about construction site safety, most people that make a living from this inherently dangerous job make it home safely. Which prompts me to wonder, what took place at this particular job site that led to this person's death?
