Man Falls 75 Feet in an Industrial Accident

A local construction worker suffered severe injuries after falling seven stories at a Panama City Beach condo construction site Saturday morning.

Thirty-year-old Jeffrey Vandivier of Lynn Haven fell though a hole in a lift at the Emerald Beach Resort Construction site at 14,700 Front Beach Road. He fell seven stories and is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.

Panama City Beach police say Vandivier and two other men were loading supplies on the lift when he backed up and fell though the missing plank.

He is a sub-contractor on the construction site.

We’re told OSHA, The Occupational Safety and Heath Administration, is investigating the mishap.
