Barn door falls, killing teen

A barn door being lifted by a front-end loader fell and killed a 16-year-old boy in Woolwich Township, north-east of Kitchener-Waterloo.

Police were called to 1220 Halm Rd. in West Montrose on Saturday morning to respond to a workplace accident.

The Ministry of Labour has ordered that the barn door be secured with a chain and that the scene remain undisturbed.

A ministry official said can take up to a year to investigate incidents such as this.
