Summary Nr: 104466.015Event: 04/03/2018Operator Of Excavator Is Struck In The Chest And Killed
At 3:30 p.m. on April 3, 2018, an employee was using the bucket of an excavator to disassemble a trench box. After instructing workers to remove the pins from the trench box and then to stand back, the employee maneuvered the bucket of the excavator to grab hold of the trench box side shield to release its spreaders. All the side shields, except for one, hit the ground. The side shield that remained in its receiver, caused the spreader to pop back up and strike the excavator's window. The employee was hit in the chest by the spreader, suffering severe injuries that resulted in his death.
