Beckner, of Bedford, suffered injuries to his head and a concussion after he fell 15 feet from an elevated conveyor. He was flown to Methodist Hospital for treatment and test results are pending.

According to Marshall Volunteer Fire Chief Chad Hayes, at 4:09 p.m. emergency crews were called to the business at 4635 Peerless Road after a report of an employee falling and unresponsive.
