    Fines possible in death of teen worker - By JOE FRIESEN, Globe and Mail, Canada
    A Manitoba company could be fined up to $175,000 after a 15-year-old underage worker was buried alive in hot asphalt.

    Andrew James of Stony Mountain, Man., was killed when a load of asphalt meant for road paving was dumped on top of him. Witnesses said they could see his only hair sticking out of the smouldering pile, and some suffered burns to their hands as they tried in vain to dig him out.

    The incident is being investigated by the RCMP and Manitoba's Workplace Safety and Health division.

    Yesterday, the province confirmed that no one under 16 is permitted to work on construction sites, which includes work such as road paving.
