Employee Suffers Electrocution

On January 24, 2008 Employees #1 and Employee # 2 of Voeller Mixers, Inc. were in a parking lot using a mobile hydraulic crane to load concrete hoppers onto a truck. Employee #1 was standing about five feet up on a cross bar of the 9 foot hopper waiting to grab the metal chain sling from the crane to rig it to the hopper when Employee #2 swung the crane around toward the hopper and the crane contacted the overhead power lines. Employee #1 grabbed the metal chain sling not knowing it had contacted the power lines and when he made contact with the chain was electrocuted and fell off the hopper. Employee #1 was taken to the local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
