An accident investigation is underway at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

Just before 5:30 p.m., a concrete bucket fell on a supervisor for a construction contractor at the shipyard.

A representative from the construction company SKANSKA tells us the worker was taken to Norfolk Sentara General Hospital with minor injuries. He was conscious and alert when he was transported.

The bucket was being moved on a crane when it fell.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
