Man Dies After Falling From Skid

Last updated on Friday, November 4, 2011

(EDINBURGH) - Authorities say a 38-year-old man has died after falling from a raised skid at a Johnson County business.

Edinburgh Fire Chief Allen Smith says the man died Wednesday at an Indianapolis hospital, a day after he was taken there following the fall at Tri County Converters and Scrap Metal Recycling.

Smith says the man was working on a skid that a forklift had raised 10 feet to 15 feet, when he fell off backward and hit his head on the concrete floor.

Smith says the man wasn't an employee of the company but was helping out at the business in the town about 20 miles south of Indianapolis.
