Man Killed in Elevator Accident in Guntersville, Alabama
Yesterday, yet another person lost their life as a result of an elevator accident. According to news reports, on January 6, 2020, a 36-year-old man died as a result of what was described as a “falling elevator” at the Pilgrim’s Pride chicken processing plant in Guntersville, Alabama. While no information has been released as to what caused the elevator to fall or any additional details surrounding this tragedy, it is obvious this should never happen.
