HANOVER – A construction worker who was injured at the Hanover Inn work site on Tuesday has died.
Dana Lowe, 53, of Morrisville, Vt., died Wednesday morning at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
In a press release, Police Chief Nicholas Giaccone said the state medical examiner has “listed the cause of death as blunt-force trauma to the head.”
Lowe was injured when a crane hook made contact with the aerial lift he was working on, causing it to topple over, according to police.
He landed on the concrete deck of a portion of new construction.
Lowe was engaged in steel erection for CSE Inc. of Williston, Vt. Engelberth Construction of Colchester, Vt., is the general contractor for the project, and the crane is owned and operated by Crane Service of Merrimack.
