MARATHON, Ont. - Ontario's Ministry of Labour is investigating after a worker was killed while installing a temporary bridge in Marathon, Ont.

A spokeswoman says the ministry was informed of the incident at about 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

Janet Deline says it appears that the steel bridge shifted as the worker was installing it, pinning the worker underneath it.

An investigator is on their way to the scene to probe the incident further.

The ministry didn't release any information about the deceased.
