PORTAGE, Wis. - A man
is dead after a cement form fell on him at Wieser Concrete Friday afternoon,
officials said.

Crews were dispatched
at 2 p.m. to 2815 Riley Rd in Portage, officials said.

Police confirmed a
Wieser employee was found dead on the site. Authorities will release the
victim's identity, once the family is notified.

According to a report,
it appears that some of the supports connected to the support chains had pulled
away from the heavy cement causing the form to drop.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration responded to the scene and
are continuing their investigation early next week, according to the report.

The company's website
says it makes precast concrete products for agricultural, highway and
commercial industries.
