LA CROSSE - A
19-year-old construction worker who suffered life-threatening
injuries when he fell 40 feet from the Interstate 90 bridge over
the Mississippi River is now recovering "extraordinarily
well" from his injuries according to his employer.
Logan Goodell of
Wheeler fell on Nov. 7 as he was installing concrete forms. He was
still strapped into his harness when rescuers reached him.
The La Crosse
Tribune reports Wednesday that Goodell is still hospitalized. But
an official with Ames Construction, the contractor, says he's
getting stronger every day. He says Goodell is determined to make
a full recovery.
A new I-90 bridge
connecting Minnesota and Wisconsin is under construction near
Dresbach, Minn. The Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health
Administration is investigating the man's fall.
