RAPID CITY -- Police continue to investigate a fatal workplace accident in which a man was crushed by a large chunk of concrete.
Friends and acquaintances have identified the deceased as 33-year-old Leon Houle of Rapid City, a married father of three young children.
Spruce Plains RCMP were called to an acreage in the RM of Saskatchewan, at 2:50 p.m. on Tuesday.
RCMP said Houle and another worker were repairing a cistern in the basement of a home when a cement wall gave way, trapping Houle.
Minnedosa firefighters inflated an airbag to move the concrete but Houle was pronounced dead at the scene.
