Officials say a worker injured near Sedalia in west-central Missouri has died.

The Sedalia Democrat reports that 52-year-old Filipe’ Murano died late Wednesday afternoon at University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia.

Murano was injured Wednesday morning near the construction site of a new First United Methodist Church when a piece of masonry fell on him.

Murano was a bricklayer for a sub-contracted masonry company from the Kansas City area.

Pettis County Coroner Skip Smith says Murano was on Normandy Road near the construction site when the incident occurred. An autopsy performed Friday shows Murano died of blunt force trauma.
