Crushing fatality

22. June 2018 | Comments (0)

A fatal crushing incident occurred yesterday when a painter using a boom lift was trapped between the platform and an overhead arch at the Lakes Regional Park, in Fort Myers, Florida.

The man, who has been named as Manreh Gene Crenshaw, 41, was working for local company Xcel Painting at the time, repainting a metal arch that spans the entrance and exit roads. He was declared dead at the scene.

Police stated that Crenshaw was repainting the arch over the entrance to the park

The local fire department was called in to rescue Crenshaw, and in an attempt to relieve the pressure on him, blew out the tires of the lift. However, it is believed that he had already succumbed to his injuries by this time.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the incident along with the Lee County sheriff's office. The platform, a Skyjack SJ40T telescopic boom lift, was released back to the rental company, Southern Gulf Equipment, yesterday afternoon.
