Ontario’s Ministry of Labour says a worker has died after he was injured working with heavy equipment at a north Toronto industrial metal business.

The ministry says its inspectors have been assigned to investigate the fatal workplace incident reported this morning at Norbel Metal.

They say firefighters did CPR on the man, who did not have vital signs, until paramedics arrived and took him to hospital in critical condition.

In a statement, the ministry says it extends its condolences to the worker’s family, friends and coworkers.
