ORLANDO, Fla. — Authorities say one worker died while working on the Virgin Trains project in Orlando. The accident happened Thursday morning as 33-year-old Marcus Green and another man were working to clear standing water that had accumulated over an inlet due to recent heavy rain. A spokesperson for Granite Construction tells WFTV the men were pulled into a pipe. Orlando Fire Department crews rescued them but Green died from his injuries. The other worker was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released. The company is investigating to determine what happened.
