A construction worker was killed after falling into a sand silo at Thomas Concrete Co. on Canton Road in Marietta.
Two subcontractors from Texas were cleaning the inside of a silo when one worker fell in. The worker was attempting to unclog a “hopper” in the silo, according to WXIA’s Jerry Carnes.
Sand and gravel fell on the worker inside the silo. As the second worker tried to free him, a collapse occurred, burying the worker.
The man’s name had not been released as of early Tuesday.
