CONROE, Texas (AP) - One worker died after a rainstorm flooded a
tunnel at a construction site in Conroe.
Law officers did not immediately release the name of the man
whose body was recovered Tuesday night.
Justice of the Peace Trey Spikes says the accident happened
after a drill bit became stuck and workers tried to free it.
A fast-moving storm dumped rain on the site and filled a pipe
and the tunnel.
Conroe Police Chief Ken Kreger says the water quickly "came in
from everywhere."
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration will
investigate.
Conroe is about 30 miles north of Houston.
