Construction worker in upstate New York crushed by 1,700-pound pipe

A construction worker has died after being crushed by a 1,700-pound pipe at an upstate New York construction site.

New York State Police say Gary Feeney of Dorchester, Massachusetts was pinned Saturday morning after the 40-foot pipe became dislodged while being unloaded from a flatbed tractor trailer.

Police say the pipe fell eight feet, crushing the 24-year-old who was holding a guide rope as the pipe was lifted by an excavator with steel cables and hooks.

The accident occurred at a National Grid construction site just outside of Saratoga Springs.

Police say an ambulance transported Feeney to a nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead at 11:20 a.m.

Police, the National Grid Internal Audit Team, Public Service Commission and OSHA are investigating.

Saratoga Springs is about 35 miles north of Albany.zzz
