Dock worker killed in LA terminal accident
An industrial incident involving a top loader container handler at a Port of Los Angeles container terminal has resulted in the death of a worker and seriously injured a second worker.
According to initial reports, an “equipment accident” occurred at Fenix Marine Services container terminal at Pier 300 on 15 May, stated the Port of Los Angeles.
An investigation into the incident has been launched by the Los Angeles Port Police along with California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal-OSHA) and the US Coast Guard. The Fenix Marine Services container terminal is currently closed.
The fatally injured worker was an International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) member. The injured worker was transported to Harbor UCLA Medical Center.
“My heart goes out to the families of the victims of this tragic accident and to all the brothers and sisters of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union,” said Port of Los Angeles executive director Gene Seroka. “It’s particularly tragic that this accident occurred on the day of the ILWU’s annual ‘First Blood’ event, which honors those who have lost their lives working on the waterfront.”
