Man Killed in Industrial Accident at Fort Lauderdale Rail Yard

Last week, a man was killed in an industrial accident while working around heavy machinery at the Fort Lauderdale FL rail year. According to Fort Lauderdale police, the “railroad incident” occurred before 5:30 p.m. n Wednesday at the FEC railyard at 3125 S. Andrews Ave. The fatal accident apparently happened while the man was inside a train container car, unloading crushed rock that is used for the construction of railroad tracks. He was struck by a piece of heavy machinery and died as a result of his injuries. While a spokesman for the Florida East Coast Railway identified the deceased worker as an independent contractor, and not an employee, nothing more is known about his identity. An investigation into the accident is still ongoing.
