Injured construction worker recovering after fall

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - An injured construction worker is said to be progressing "extraordinarily well" after he fell 45 feet from a bridge project near La Crosse. 

His employer said 19-year-old Logan Goodell of Wheeler in Dunn County is getting stronger every day as he continues his hospitalization. 

Roger McBride of Ames Construction said Goodell is working to rebuild his energy and strength, and he's determined to make a full recovery. 

Goodell was injured November 6th while working on bridge improvements along Interstate 90 over the Mississippi River at the Wisconsin-Minnesota border. He was installing concrete forms when he fell into a temporary enclosure that keeps a section of the river-bottom pumped dry, so support piers can be installed. 

Goodell was wearing a harness when he was rescued. 

Minnesota's Occupational Safety and Health Administration continues to investigate the accident.
