Construction equipment can be extremely dangerous to work on or operate for that matter. Witnesses stated however, that this particular gentleman had almost 4 decades of experience with equipment, and are still in shock over his accidental passing.
The Cherokee County Coroner has reported that the victim’s body was found underneath the tractor. It appeared as though the man had been attempting to remove the blade from the tractor hen the hoist holding up the weight of the tractor collapsed, and the tractor toppled over.
The man suffocated while he was pinned to the ground by the extremely heavy equipment.
The body was first found by a family member, hours after the man had passed away.
The death has officially been ruled an accident.
