On Wednesday, the police reported that a father of two and a contractor from Wisconsin met with his demise due to a flying water main cap. The incident is indeed unfortunate.
The Pleasant Prairie Police Department shared on their Facebook page that they received a report of an injury that occurred at a construction site. Both police and fire officials were notified of the incident.
According to the authorities, a construction site accident resulted in a severe injury to one of the workers. Regrettably, the worker succumbed to his injuries at the accident spot. These are preliminary reports about the incident.
After further investigation, it was discovered that the individual in question is Cody M. Nelson, a resident of Elkhorn who is 34 years old.
During this challenging time, the police have expressed their heartfelt condolences to the Nelson family. “Our hearts are with the entire Nelson Family during this difficult time,” they stated.
An investigation into the incident is being conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
According to a news release from the Department of Labor, Nelson tragically lost his life while working on a water main. The Belleville News-Democrat obtained the news release.
According to the press release, the recent addition of a 1000-foot extension to an existing water pipe was completed about 8 weeks ago. However, when a worker attempted to remove the cap to resume work on the pipe, the pressure from the water caused the cap to come off and hit the worker.
According to the release, OSHA is given a timeframe of six months to conduct an investigation and identify any potential safety violations that may exist on the site.
According to his obituary, Cody M. Nelson had held the position of project manager and foreman at Bradford Contractors before his untimely passing. He is survived by his loving wife and two children who mourn his loss deeply. The obituary did not provide any further details about his life or career.
According to his obituary, Cody was a devoted family man and will be greatly missed by his loved ones. He had a special place in his heart for his wife, children, parents, siblings, nieces, nephews, and friends. Cody was an outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, and snowboarding. He also had a passion for music and was a talented singer who performed with his family in bands since he was a child. Those who knew him will remember his kind and loving nature, which brought comfort to all those who had the pleasure of meeting him.
According to reports, Nelson had a whopping 48 cousins and a number of them recently spoke to WTMJ about their connection with him.
Kent Sanderson fondly remembers their beloved bulldog, whom they called the In-Cody-ble Hulk. This faithful companion was a true force to be reckoned with, always pushing through tough times and motivating them to keep going. His absence will surely be felt deeply by all who knew him.
