"OHS continues to investigate a fatal workplace incident that occurred in Airdrie on September 28. One worker died after being struck by equipment. As this is an active investigation, no further information will be provided at this time," a spokesperson for OHS wrote.

On September 28, 2022, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Airdrie RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision on 1 Ave west between 8th Street and Edwards Way.

The investigation revealed the collision involved a dump truck and a construction worker who had been working on the roadway.

Upon police arrival, EMS declared the construction worker deceased. The driver of the dump truck was uninjured. 

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the deceased," an RCMP press release stated.

 After the tragedy, two gofundme campaigns were initiated for the man, who has since been identified as Prince Owusu.

One of the gofundme campaigns stated he was father to two young children and that he was, a vibrant and loving father and will be missed ever so dearly by all who have had the luck of meeting him.'

The other gofundme campaign that was started by a coworker of Owusu's said that he was, a man dedicated to his family, dedicated to the company he worked for, as well as the crew he worked with.

"Prince did not go to work to lose his life. He went to work to provide. In the wake of this, he leaves behind two wonderful children who now face insurmountable odds. His hard work and loyalty to his family will forever be remembered and appreciated by all the people he has come to know. For his children, Prince led by example."

The two fundraisers have amassed thousands of dollars in donations, which were meant to be used for funeral expenses and other costs for the family.
