March 11: Worker Dies after Being Pinned under Heavy Machinery
A worker found a co-worker pinned to the ground under a heavy piece of machinery. It appeared that he had been working alone servicing a dump truck when there was an equipment failure that caused a piece of the truck to land on him. By the time an ambulance arrived, he was already dead. The RCMP is investigating in conjunction with the Coroner’s Office and the WSCC.
