There's been another workplace tragedy in Leduc.

Very little is known at this time but Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) have confirmed the death of a worker yesterday afternoon.

STARS Air Ambulance was called out to the business here in Leduc at around 2:20 pm after a worker fell.

When they arrived they did not transport the patient to the hospital.

It was confirmed once they'd arrived that the man had died.

The victim was a male aged 45 but his name has not been released.
