Gammon is the first fatality associated with the new Mississippi River Bridge project. When completed, the bridge will span 1,500 feet, making it the third largest cable-stayed bridge in the country.
The body of carpenter Andy Gammon, 35, was found in the Mississippi River late yesterday by a diver. Gammon was still tethered to the aerial man lift that he was working on at the time of his fall. The St. Clair County Coroner's office will perform an autopsy.
