OSHAWA, Ont. – The Ministry of Labour says a worker who was critically injured Tuesday at a construction site in Oshawa, Ont., has died in hospital.

Ministry spokeswoman Janet Deline says the worker was struck by a bucket that was attached to a crane.

Media reports say it took firefighters about two hours to free the man, who was rushed to hospital.

Deline says a ministry inspector and engineer have visited the work site and the contractor has been ordered not to disturb the scene.

She says the investigation is ongoing.
