HAZARD, Ky.(AP)- State officials say a crane accident at a
mining site in southeastern Kentucky has fatally wounded a worker.
Energy and Environment Cabinet spokeswoman Ricki Gardenhire says
37-year-old Leslie D. Trent of Hazard was struck by a crane arm at
around 6 p.m. EST Monday.
Trent was working for New York-based Frontier-Kemper
Constructors at a site owned by Perry County Coal Corp.
Gardenhire says Trent and another worker were changing equipment
on a crane when the arm fell several feet and landed on them.
Trent was flown to the University of Tennessee Hospital in
Knoxville, where he later died. The other worker suffered a severe
cut on the head and was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital in
Lexington. His condition was not known Tuesday afternoon.
My deepest sympathies to the families involved.Lets all pray for them,please.And PLEASE...no smart remarks on this thread.

This is the second crane fatality in as many years for this company. They use bad equipment and have countless violation citations for faulty equipment.
How many men have to die or be severely injured before they are forced to use safe equipment?
My thoughts and prayers to the families and coworkers of those injured and killed.

This is so terrible, especially around the Holidays. My thoughts and prayers are with both families and their friends/coworkers.

Leslie was one of the very few people that I really consider a true friend. We worked together for several years before he left and went to work in the mines. It has just about took my life finding out what happened to him. When my wife died several years ago Leslie was there every night and for the funeral. He stood with me through the whole thing and helped me every step of the way. He was a True Friend to me and my Family.
Here is Leslie's Obituary
