A worker who suffered an electric shock at the site of a future Amazon warehouse south of Edmonton has died of his injuries.
A Facebook post by Colton Quast’s mother says her 25-year-old son “passed away peacefully” early Wednesday morning.
Marlyn Quast-Frank wrote that family, friends and Quast’s fiancee were at his side.
Quast, who was an employee of A Circuit Electric Ltd., suffered life-threatening injuries last Thursday while working at the site in Nisku, Alta.
He was taken to hospital where he was put in a medically induced coma.
Occupational Health and Safety was investigating.
