NEW YORK One worker was
killed and two others injured in a May 9 accident at Southland
Tube Inc.s Birmingham, Ala., facility.
"They were using a crane to move
a bundle of pipe, and apparently somehow it came loose and fell
on three employees," Phillip Russell, Jefferson County deputy
coroner, told AMM.
The worker who was killed was
identified as Herman Johnson, 46, he said.
The two other employees did not
suffer life-threatening injuries, Russell said, although local
media reported May 10 that one of the two was in critical
Southland Tube, which makes hollow structural sections,
didnt return a request for comment.
