Worker Crushed to Death by Rock Salt

We talk a lot about engulfment in the context of trenching but rarely look at the danger when it comes in the form of an above ground pile of materials. In this case, the worker was working on an excavator and was engulfed when a 100 foot high pile of rock salt collapsed on top of him. Rescue wasn’t able to get him out in time.
