(Dresbach, MN) -- Authorities have released the name of a construction worker who fell from a bridge over the Mississippi River on Interstate 90 at Dresbach, but officials have not provided an update on Logan Goodell's condition. The 19-year-old, from Wheeler in western Wisconsin, had surgery just after Wednesday's fall. WXOW-TV in La Crosse quoted a Winona County sheriff's report which said that Goodell was removing framework that was set up to pour concrete, when he stepped backward and fell 42-feet into a coffer-dam below. The report said the employee, who works for Ames Construction, was wearing a harness, but it was not being used properly. Winona County deputies are investigating, along with Ames Construction and OSHA.
