Work Accident Kills Fort Wayne Man

Steve Wagner

State safety officials are investigating the death of a Fort Wayne, Indiana, man after he fell from a scissor lift and sustained a fatal head injury. The man, 54-year-old Jim McCullough was installing safety equipment at the Assmann Corporation’s factory in Garrett, IN when the scissor lift fell over, dropping McCullough from about 35-feet in the air.

The work accident happened last Saturday at the factory, which is located about 20 miles north of Fort Wayne, but the cause of the movement which caused the scissor lift to fall is unknown.

Our thoughts go out to Mr. McCullough and his loved ones, and we hope the Assmann Corporation will follow through on their responsibility to take care of those closest to him.
