    Default Someone died at Pop Century

    The Orlando Sentinel had an article about an employee found dead at Pop Century. There weren't very many facts given, but I feel badly for his family.

    Very sad situation. The only news I've heard thus far is that there was some sort of industrial accident.

    The CM was working on a motorized cart when it lurched forward, partially climbed a fence, then flipped over backward, falling onto the CM. Other CMs tried to lift the machine off him but it was too heavy. The CM was pronounced deceased by Reedy Creek Fire Rescue paramedics. The area where this occurred is a vehicle maintenance and fueling facility, not connected with skyway construction. Very sad incident.

    Most people don't expect their loved one to not come home from work. It must be so shocking for them and so traumatic for the coworkers.

    Wow--he was so young. I feel so sad for the family and I can't even imagine how his coworkers that tried to lift the vehicle off of him feel.
