Anthony David
Montoya18male2018-10-01A female bear and her two cubs mauled and killed Anthony David Montoya while he was working at a remote mine site on a southeast Alaska island with one of the highest bear densities in the state. A contract worker from Hollis, OK, Montoya died at a remote drill site accessible only by helicopter. Greens Creek Mine officials said workers receive training on how to deal with bears.

Workers are taught, for example, ways to prevent bear encounters, including proper disposal of food. Bear spray is available to carry between buildings and trained personnel use bean bags to scare away bears from established areas. The mine also has videos on bear behavior. In remote locations, bear spray is among the tools employees generally bring with them in the case of bear encounters

Alaska State Troopers said Montoya was mauled by the three bears, all of which were killed before they arrived. It was not immediately clear who killed them.

Travis Rutherford
Potts Jr.47male2018-10-03Travis Rutherford Potts Jr., 47, was pronounced dead shortly after the East Alabama Paving liquid asphalt truck he was operating overturned. At around 6 a.m., Opelika police and fire responded to the 100 block of Old Columbus Road in reference to a single-vehicle traffic accident.

Potts was found in the cab of the truck with no signs of life, Lee County Coroner Bill Harris said. “Potts was removed quickly from the vehicle due to spilled liquid asphalt at the accident,” Harris said. He pronounced Potts dead at the scene. There were no visible signs of injury and investigators believe the driver may have suffered a medical event prior to the crash, Harris said. Potts’ body was taken to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences’ Examiner’s Office for a postmortem examination.

CAJeremy LeeAppleyard43male2018-09-27Jeremy Lee Appleyard, a private contractor helping the U.S. Forest Service do repair work at the scene of the largest California wildfire on record, the Mendocino Complex Fire, was killed after the pickup truck he was driving rolled off a hill from a road in the Mendocino National Forest.

Appleyard, 43, was driving eastbound on a dirt road in the forest near the community of Elk Creek, west of Willows, when his 1996 GMC 1500 rolled down a steep embankment, according to the California Highway Patrol, which is investigating the crash. He "made an unsafe turn to the left and allowed his vehicle to leave the roadway," the CHP's summary of the incident said. The Highway Patrol said the truck rolled over several times and Appleyard, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the truck and died as a result of the collision at 5:10 p.m. on Thursday. Appleyard had been missing for a couple of days, and federal officials involved in the Mendocino Complex Fire work had put out a "be on the lookout" alert to help find him. Appleyard's body was found on Saturday, almost exactly 48 hours after the crash, according to the CHP.

Appleyard was "assigned to fire suppression repair work" in the national forest, federal officials said in a news release Monday. "The driver of the vehicle was part of the log removal process," Punky Moore, a spokeswoman for the Mendocino National Forest, said in an email. Appleyard worked for Oroville-based J.W. Bamford Logging, according to the coroner's office. Bamford Logging is licensed and authorized to conduct forest tree cutting and removal operations, according to a Cal Fire listing. Workplace regulators are not investigating the death.

The beam being placed hit the stack of beams, causing three of them to fall off the trailer bed. The falling I-beams struck Segundo and he was knocked to the ground. His father who also works for West Coast Iron was at the scene. Segundo had no pulse when paramedics and deputies arrived, but paramedics were able to restore a pulse before taking him to the emergency room at Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest. Doctors there were unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead in the hospital's trauma bay. The cause of death was listed as blunt trauma.The state Division of Occupational Safety and Health, or Cal/OSHA, will investigate the fatality, a process that can take up to six months, to determine if any workplace violations contributed to the accident

Jose Alberto
Escobar Guerra
66male2018-10-06OSHA was notified of Jose Alberto Escobar Guerra, 66, of Mexico, an employee of Cal North Farm Labor, Inc., who was fatally crushed while working around a walnut bin at Crain Walnut Shelling Inc., according to Frank Polizzi, DIR Public Information Officer.

Several employees have reached out to Action News Now to expresses that conditions are unsafe at the factory. One man said that he was almost killed by the same machine, known as the "bin dumper," a year and a half ago.

"There is not one safety feature on this whatsoever," said Dan Scampini, a mechanical engineering designer at Crain Walnut Shelling, Inc. "It comes down silently, it rises silently and comes down quickly, raises quickly. Management knows about it. This almost killed me a year and a half ago on May 3."

Another employee said that the equipment was originally designed to be raised off of the ground so that this wouldn't happen. Scampini said that he was trying to push for safety features on this machine for the past year.

Scampini says that since speaking with the media, he has been placed on a two-week unpaid suspension for showing a piece of Crain's equipment without permission. This violates the employee handbook and confidential disclosure agreement according to Crain. He is expected to return to work on October 26.

Edward "Richard"
Reins68male2018-10-14Richard Reins, an employee of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca died on Sunday after being struck by a car while trying to aid another driver who had lost control, according to the company managing the event. Corner workers are employees who wave flags to signal to drivers during racing sessions. They're positioned along the fencing of the track within sight of drivers but with gravel and/or sandtraps between their posts and the track itself.

One of the cars in the group had a mechanical issue and spilled oil near the entry of turn 7, the turn directly before the famous “Corkscrew” corner. Red and yellow waved flags were shown throughout the area during the incident to advise drivers to proceed with caution and slow down.

Cars in a leading group of four drivers were the first to encounter the spilled oil. One of the cars in the group, identified as a Porsche 911 GT3 by multiple participating drivers, slid through the oil and went off-track. Another Porsche 911 GT3RS two cars behind lost traction and went into the barriers on the left side of the track. At some point during that crash, Reins left his turn station to assist a driver and was hit by another participant's car, according to the Facebook post and driver postings.

COEctorRodriguez65male2018-09-29Ector Rodriguez died Sunday afternoon when he was crushed by the pin-setting machine at the bowling alley he owned. The former owner of the bowling alley said the equipment "wasn't real modern." Police and fire and rescue personnel found Ector Rodriguez, 65, trapped in the machine, unconscious and not breathing, according to the Canon City Daily Record. The business was open at the time, and people were bowling. "He went back to service the machine," Police Chief Mike DeLaurentis said. "The employee said she hasn't seen him in about 15-20 minutes. She went back to check on him and that's when she found him trapped in the machine and called 911."

Police said the death is being treated as an accident. No foul play is suspected. Fremont Lanes is a long time staple in Florence.
"He was a manager as well as mechanic," former owner Larry Baker said. Baker said Rodriguez worked for him when he owned it, then eventually ran the place himself.
Rodriguez worked with the old pin setter and knew the equipment well.

CTJacekPilchowski59male2018-10-10Jacek Pilchowski fell 30 feet through a skylight at Stamford Windustrial Co. Pilchowski was repairing or replacing the four-foot by four-foot skylights on the roof. He suffered “trauma to the head” once he fell through an uncovered skylight to the warehouse floor, and lost a significant amount of blood. The man was transported to Stamford Hospital where he died later that afternoon.

Barcello said the accident is being investigated by OSHA and he is unaware of their findings. But he could tell by looking at the accident scene that it was clear that whatever man stepped onto that was placed over the skylight could not support his weight. Barcello said that investigators in the department’s Bureau of Criminal Investigations are pitching in to help find relatives in foreign countries in order to notify them of the death.

The accident occurred at the plumbing supply store and warehouse, Stamford Windustrial on Sunnyside Avenue. An employee said Thursday the building’s owner hired the company to perform the construction. He said Windustrial rents the space.

A spokesman for the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration said an investigation has begun into the worker’s company, RP Construction of Stamford. The OSHA spokesman declined to comment until the investigation is completed. The city of Stamford had issued a stop work on the project. A person who answered the phone at RP Construction LLC in Stamford said his company was not involved in the accident.

The replacement battery was secured to an electric hoist and being lowered by a lever, police said. But it got hung up on the corner of another battery sitting next to the jack, police said. The employee leaned forward to guide it off the obstruction, police said. When he did, the battery came down and struck him, police said. Arauz’s death follows more than a dozen worker safety violations at the Harbeson-area plant over the last several years, as outlined by citations issued by OSHA.

The dump truck was hauling dirt from one side of the C-24 canal to the other. The collision happened as the dump truck traveled on a dirt road. Stop signs were visible Friday at the area where the crash occurred. There are no mast arms at the crossing. According to Florida Highway Patrol officials, the front of the freight train struck the left side of the dump truck, knocking the truck into the canal. The dump truck cab separated from the body of the truck and the driver was ejected. The train did not derail. On Friday morning, divers recovered his body from a canal in Port St. Lucie.

No one saw Cooper fall into the water, but a coworker said he saw him in the water and threw him two life savers and a floating vest, but Cooper sunk under the water before he could grab them. Cooper was not wearing a life jacket when he fell off the barge, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. The Fuller Warren is undergoing a $126 million state renovation and expansion. A group of barges with a crane atop one is tied to the southeast side of the bridge. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the case.

OSHA cited Archer Western in August for safety violations after two employees died when a section of concrete highway barrier collapsed on them as they removed a storm drain system, according to federal documents.

IAPaul EvanDeBoer59male2018-10-12Paul DeBoer died in a northwest Iowa farm accident. The Lyon County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred Friday on a farm northwest of Inwood. The office says 59-year-old Paul DeBoer was operating the machine when it rolled over and pinned him. DeBoer was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep said Paul Evan De Boer was operating an old tractor — with an old loader on its front and no enclosed cab — when it rolled over and pinned De Boer underneath it. De Boer was pronounced dead at the scene.

“From what I got from the officers out there, he had a big, round hay bale on the loader on the front of his tractor,” Vander Stoep said. “There must have been a small incline. The tractor started to slide a little bit and it caught onto something and tipped.”

He said the tractor’s wheels likely hit harder ground that stopped its sideways slide. He added that the sudden stop likely broke the farm machine’s front axle and helped cause the tractor to roll over.

“The weight on the loader was probably part of it,” Vander Stoep said. “Once the momentum got going there, the bale probably helped tip it over.”

Vander Stoep did not know how long De Boer had been pinned underneath the tractor before emergency responders arrived at the scene.

Crews working on the construction of a nine-story apartment building were using a crane to unload steel beams from a truck about 8:25 a.m. when a beam fell on the two workers at the worksite in the 800 block of Emerson Street in Evanston, according to Evanston police spokesman Perry Polinski.

The beam was about 30 feet in the air when the crane’s rigging failed and the beam dropped onto the two men, ages 55 and 27, according to the Evanston Fire Department. Evanston police spokesman Perry Polinski says one worker was pronounced dead at a hospital. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the dead man as 55-year-old David G. Bialas of Compton, Illinois. The other worker, a 27-year-old Woodridge man, was hospitalized in critical condition.

OSHA spokeswoman Rhonda Burke said the deceased employee worked for Area Erectors Inc. of Chicago. A spokesman for the company declined to comment on the incident.

ILArlen J.Bradley18male2018-08-24A man died after being run over by a bus he was overhauling Friday afternoon at a junkyard in south suburban Chicago Heights.

Officers responded at 2:17 p.m. to the incident at Wilkins Rebuilders Supply, 171 E. 12th St., according to Chicago Heights police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. When they arrived, officers learned that an employee driving a front end loader started moving the bus without realizing that 18-year-old Arlen J. Bradley was working underneath it, police said. The loader’s operator then moved the bus forward, causing the rear wheels to run Bradley over.

Bradley was taken to Franciscan Health Chicago Heights, where he died at 2:47 p.m. Friday, authorities said. He lived in Cedar Lake, Indiana. Bradley had just graduated high school that spring.

INSheriffJallow50male2018-05-29Sheriff Jallow was shot and killed while working at a Shell gas station around 5am on May 29, 2018. He’d been killed by a man with a grudge against Jallow over an incident that had happened at the gas station a day or so before the shooting. The suspect in Jallow's death, Antonio Eubanks, and his girlfriend had been locked inside the station after Jallow tried to stop a separate confrontation between two other customers, according to the affidavit. Still angry, Eubanks told a witness that "he was going to get" Jallow, the affidavit said. On the night before the shooting, Eubanks reportedly told the witness to get out of the area because "it was going down tonight."

Armed with a black handgun with an extended magazine, Eubanks waited for about three hours until Jallow was leaving the business, the witness told police. As soon as Jallow exited the gas station, Eubanks approached him and opened fire, the affidavit said. The witness told police he saw Eubanks pursue Jallow, still firing as Jallow ran to the front door of the gas station. Once Jallow made it inside the store, the witness said, Eubanks fled the station on foot and then drove away on a moped, according to court documents. Jallow died at IU Health Methodist Hospital, police said. Officers found nine bullet casings in the gas station parking lot and one more inside the front door of the store. An autopsy found Jallow had been shot 12 times, court documents said. Jallow, 50, was a police officer in his native Gambia.

INPrafulPatel49male2018-10-11Praful Patel, the owner of the the Stop & Go gas station in Jeffersonville was shot and killed during a robbery late Thursday night. Police say they were sent to the station around 10:50 p.m. on Oct. 11 after a female customer called 911 to report that she was inside the store and there was no sign of anyone behind the counter. Hollis said when officers arrived about 2-3 minutes after receiving the call, they found Patel dead in the office area of the store. Surveillance footage shows a male, light-skinned subject entering the business at approximately 10:40 p.m., armed with a gun. The station normally closes at 11 p.m. The suspect held Patel at gunpoint before shooting him and taking the business cash, Hollis said, adding that he left the store on foot. Hollis said Patel was alone when he was shot, and that he worked in the store from morning until evening every day, along with other members of his family. He wasn't sure if the person that shot Patel was a previous customer or if the two knew each other.

LARonnieFrancois50male2018-10-11Ronnie Francois, a state prisoner in a work release program affiliated with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office died Thursday afternoon after he suffered a head injury while working with construction materials, the sheriff said. Francois, 50, died shortly before 3 p.m. while working at a location in the 36000 block of Corbin Road in Walker on a job manufacturing construction materials, Ard said. The sheriff did not name the business for which Francois was working.

A family member of the state work release inmate killed in a workplace incident Thursday said he suffered a head injury from a falling beam. "They were unloading beams and it somehow fell and hit him in the head," said Courtney Toups, the niece of Ronnie Francois. "We don't have too many details."

Michael Buvens, of B & C Industrial, declined to comment on the specifics of the incident but said, "We’re heartbroken over everything."

Lockhart, of Lock5 LLC, said this was the first serious injury or death since he began running the work release facility in January. Lockhart said he sends inmates to work at 40 to 50 different businesses.

Lori Steele, a spokeswoman for Ard's office, said the death will not affect the contract it maintains with the facility's operator.

Livingston TWP was formerly operated by Paul Perkins, of Louisiana Workforce LLC. Lockhart, who is from Livingston Parish, said he purchased the contract from Perkins.
