Worker Crushed to Death at Declo Dairy
DECLO, Idaho (AP) — A Caldwell man has died in a construction accident at a southern Idaho dairy and feedlot.
Law enforcement officials say 35-year-old Junior Ramiro was crushed to death while working with some siding. Cassia County Undersheriff George Warrell told The Times-News newspaper that just before 6:30 a.m. Thursday Ramiro went into a large, metal shipping container to get some siding. The siding came down on top of him and crushed him against the side of the container.
Co-workers performed CPR on Ramiro until emergency workers arrived, but Ramiro was pronounced dead at the scene. The name of the feedlot and dairy, which was under construction, was not immediately available. Warrell says Ramior was working with Adams and Armando Construction.
