The area under construction is to be the new Target store at the mall.

Mississauga Fire officials confirmed the news just before 1 o'clock on Monday afternoon.

The man became trapped underthe piles of steel just after 11:30 a.m.

Other workers at the site said the man killed was laying down the roof deck when steel joists collapsed underneath him.
