“The victim had been working under a wooden platform that had a 400-gallon water tank on top of it,” Wolffis said. “The platform collapsed while the victim was under it.”

Rojas was trapped underneath the wood and tank until the owner of the property removed the debris, Wolffis said.

Sheriff’s deputies and Robinson Township firefighters treated the patient at the scene. He was transported to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids by North Ottawa Community Hospital ambulance. He was listed in critical condition at the Grand Rapids hospital late Friday, Wolffis said.

Wolffis said it is unknown what caused the wooden platform to collapse, and the case remains under investigation.
