Injury accident at KSU Foundation Building under investigation

Salina Post – April 21, 2015

One person was injured in an accident on Monday at the construction site of the new KSU Foundation building and K-State Office Park in Manhattan.

Deputy Fire Chief Ryan Almes said the Manhattan Fire Department responded just after 10:30 a.m. to the construction site at 1800 Kimball.

They extricated a man who had been trapped under a piece of equipment on the top floor and assisted Riley County EMS.

An employee of the steel erection subcontractor, Ferco, was injured and transported for medical treatment. Preliminary reports indicate that the employee’s injuries are not life threatening.

Justin Cooper, vice president of GE Johnson Construction Co., said both emergency medical personnel and K-State Occupational Safety and Health representatives responded quickly to the incident, and that a full investigation is underway by GE Johnson / Hutton, A Joint Venture and its partners.
