Employee Dies After Fall Into Molten Aluminum

At 12:00 noon on September 13, 20220, an employee and his coworkers had finished an aluminum casting pour on a cast table. Once the pour was complete, the troug h was moved from the casting table to adjacent stands via an overhead crane. The employee and his coworkers were in the process of cleaning the casting trough t o prepare for the next pour. The employee was prepping the trough, which was sti ll attached to the load block of the crane. Coworker #1 retrieved the remote cr ane pendant with the intent to move the crane east. Coworker #1 assumed that the crane was unhooked from the casting trough and free of a load. Coworker #1 hois ted up the load and bridged to the east simultaneously while the employee was fa cing the trough. When the trough was pulled from the stands, the employee and co worker #2 were swept onto the casting table. The employee landed in a casting pi t filled with molten aluminum. Coworker #2 managed to avoid the pit and was unha rmed. The employee's lower left leg and buttocks made contact with the molten me tal and his clothing ignited. The employee was able to free himself from the pit and was extinguished and treated by coworkers. The employee was hospitalized wi th third degree burns. One month later the employee suffered an embolism while i n physical therapy at the hospital and died.
