The ditch caved in sending McDonough to the hospital. The City of Chicago Department of Water Management does not provide shoring for it’s workforce. Patrick McDonough has demanded shoring for years, and the grievances files disappeared. Illinois Department of Labor has been notified. Patrick McDonough has five children and is pictured with Michael and David. This photo was taken by Chicago Sun-Times Photojournalist, Richard A. Chapman. Richard is a great artist. Please see attached article by Fran Spielman of Chicago Sun-Times. The Chicago Tribune also covered this tragedy on April 7, 2006.
