Luke Marzano was working on the Martin Tower property site in Bethlehem when he sustained crushing injuries to his pelvis and abdomen around 11:50 a.m. Thursday, the Lehigh County Coroner’s Office said.

A crew has been working to clean up the remnants of the Bethlehem Steel Corp headquarters, which closed four months ago. During the process Luke Marzano was pinned, and killed by hydraulic equipment, he was given CPR after he was freed from the equipment, but he did not survive.

Employed by Montville-based CATCO Demolition Services, Marzano was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The death was ruled an accident, the coroner’s office said in a news release.

The death is being investigating by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Bethlehem police and the coroner’s office, the release states.
