Grant County Construction Fatal

A Grant County teenager was killed after a large chunk of concreate fell on him late last week. The incident happened on Old Highway Road near US 151 in Paris Township. A release issued by the sheriff’s department yesterday identifies the victim as 15 year old John Kanagy of rural Platteville. Authorities say Kanagy was helping family members disassemble a concreate silo at around 4:20 last Friday afternoon, when a large piece of the concreate fell from about 50 to 60 feet and struck Kanagy in the head. He was transported to Mercy Hospital in Dubuque. The boy died just before 7:15 that night at the hospital.
