The cause of the accident appears to be a formwork collapse. Nobody else was injured during the incident. Spokane Tribe Online Casino general manager Javier De La Rosa said during a press conference on Tuesday that “the family and work crew onsite are at the forefront of our thoughts and prayers.”
On its Facebook page, the Spokane Tradeswomen labor union wrote that Ana Vetter “loved her work and was proud to be a woman in construction.”
A worker died after a structural collapse at the Spokane Tribe Online Casino’s construction site, where a hotel is being built. Local media identified the deceased as Ana Vetter, a 27-year-old local carpenter. The Spokane Tribal Police Department, alongside other agencies, is currently investigating the matter, which occurred at about 9:30am on Tuesday.
A commenter on the post added: “I remember her telling me that she wanted to work in construction. And then she got her first job. She was a very nice girl, who was a very good friend of my daughter. This is surely a tragedy. RIP Ana.”
