Man Nearly Killed in Grain Elevator Fall, Company Ticketed
According to KIMT, “Last May, Keegan Henry, 17 of Nashua fell at least 60 feet from the top of the tallest silo at The Mill Incorporated at 102 Sample Street in Nashua.” The owner still claims he does not know what the worker was doing at the top at that time.
Now, the company has been ticketed by Iowa Occupational Safety and Health Bureau. KIMT reports, the company is being cited for “6 “serious” safety violations and proposing penalties of $5,100.
Employees took about an hour to located Henry below the empty silo. Henry is still recovering at a special center, and family members say he remains in a partial coma.
The company has not yet made a decision about whether to contest the violations.
