Injured construction worker home from hospital after 45 foot fall

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A construction worker is home from the hospital, almost four weeks after he fell 45 feet from a bridge project near La Crosse.  

19-year-old Logan Goodell of Wheeler in Dunn County was installing concrete forms, when he plunged into a temporary enclosure.

His Web page on Caring Bridge said Goodell was originally going to be released Wednesday from the Gundersen Health System in La Crosse. However, his departure was moved up by two days due to his fast recovery.  

Recently, an official of his employer -- Ames Construction -- said Goodell was working to rebuild his strength, and he's determined to make a full recovery.  

The accident occurred on Interstate 90 over the Mississippi River at the Wisconsin-Minnesota border. The Gopher State's Occupational Safety and Health agency is investigating.
