PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) -- A Tampa Bay area steel plant worker was crushed to death when a large steel roll fell on him.
Pinellas Park police report that the accident happened Tuesday afternoon at USP Structural Connectors.
Authorities say 25-year-old Eric Joseph Kanganis was standing on top of a forklift trying to unpack several of the rolls and cut a steel band that had been holding them together. Loosening the band may have caused the roll of steel to spring forward, pinning him to the forklift.
Police say the death is under investigation, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified.
