August 2, 2011


— A construction worker who died after falling from scaffolding at Kansas State University has been identified as a Council Grove man.

Kansas State officials say 26-year-old Zachery John Wilson died Monday while he was doing masonry work at Kansas State's football stadium.

Kansas State said in a news release that the man was working on the east side of Bill Snyder Family Stadium when the scaffolding gave way and he fell 100 feet to the parking lot.

Wilson worked for Five Star Masonry, a subcontractor for Konrath Construction Managers, which is building the stadium's new restrooms.

The university says it would be working with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to investigate the accident.
