Commercial Air Conditioner Falls off Truck, Kills One
A heavy-duty, 3,200-pound air conditioner, has fallen off a truck, and crushed an employee working at a Pennsylvania plant, for a Wisconsin company, on Wednesday, July 27th.
Jennifer Wright, a 37-year-old West York woman, was assisting in loading the unit onto a trailer at a Johnson Controls plant in Spring Garden Township when it fell off the pallet and landed on her. She was retrieved from underneath the equipment and taken to a hospital, where she died. Wright’s death has been classified as work-related by the York County Coroner Pam Gay and the autopsy was scheduled for the following Friday. Wright was a temporary employee of the Wisconsin-based company and Johnson Controls is deeply saddened by Wright’s death.
