OSHA investigates fatal workplace accident
A Momence man was killed last week after he fell off a roof in a workplace accident.
The man was a laborer at Silva International Inc. and was working when he fell last week. The Kankakee County coroner pronounced him dead at 4:52 p.m. The investigation shows that injuries from the fall caused the man’s death.
It was stated by officials that it was not a mechanical defect, he fell from a roof while working on it. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is still investigating at this time.
Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of the victims at this time.
