I was working on a blog post, trying to get photos of the demolishing of the old Central State Bank building, owned by Carter Temple, on 79th near State.

The following news story was shown on Fox 32's 9pm news show.

Chicago - A worker was killed in a construction accident on the South Side on Wednesday morning.
The incident happened about 8:54 a.m. 11 E. 79th St., according to Fire Media Affairs.
“A male construction worker was fatally injured when a concrete beam or wall fell on top of him,” police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.
The victim was dead on the scene, according to Fire Media Affairs.
Let us know if you have more info on either the incident or the project...
