BROWNSBURG, Ind. — A teenage boy injured when a partially built strip mall in Brownsburg collapsed in storms earlier this week has died.
A spokesman for the Brownsburg Fire Territory confirmed the boy’s death Thursday.
First responders were called to a structure-collapse shortly before 3:45 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Northfield Drive and State Road 267.
Four people, including the 15-year-old boy, were taken to hospitals after the building collapse. The boy’s name is not being released.
Sunny Singh, the owner of Singh Construction, on Monday told our newsgathering partners at WISH-TV that the boy was part of the framing subcontractor’s crew on the site. Singh said the strong winds came at the wrong time of construction and the building collapsed.
The National Weather Service said tree limbs in the area of the building collapse were downed by the 60 mph winds.
Brownsburg’s building inspector and the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration were expected to investigate the building collapse.
