One worker was crushed to death and another injured while building a reinforced cinderblock wall for a new car dealership in El Cajon, Calif., Monday afternoon. The two men were digging footings next to the wall when it collapsed, fire officials said. One of them, a 21-year-old man, was pushed back and not trapped underneath the structure. He injured his leg and back. The other victim, only identified as a 51-year-old man, became trapped under it and died, officials said.
