Atlanta, GA – Man Killed in Fatal Workplace Accident on Gun Club Rd

Atlanta, GA (March 17, 2022) – A man was killed in a fatal workplace accident that took place at a construction site in Atlanta on Tuesday afternoon, March 15. 

Atlanta officials confirmed that the accident happened around 4 p.m. at 1220 Gun Club Road. The incident took place at a construction site in the area. Two men were allegedly working on an apartment building renovation and replacing a stairwell. This is when the structure collapsed, falling onto one of the workers. The collapse also struck a gas meter, though it did not cause a gas leak. 

Paramedics and numerous other responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The worker who was struck in the collapse was severely injured and was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The other party was not hurt in the accident. 

Due to the severity of the accident, the construction zone was blocked off. Officials confirmed that the apartment building was already empty prior to the accident. 

No further details have been released but the investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
