I would like to say that even though human life is worth more.The people that work there know that the job is dangerous.Yes the company should do checks on the safety of the auto shut offs and do debreefs on safety with the employees at least once a month.But all in all we don't know if the guy fell asleep.We don't know if the guy died right before he fell in.And how long has the company been in business compared to how many accident claims have been made.

Given the part of the state the accident occured in, I am suspicious. The central San Joaquin Valley is riddled with crime. I have no doubt this man was were the others. Hanford at least, is a better place than Corcoran. This valley, which was once akin to "Mayberry" is now a hell hole of violence.

this is not the fault of all the employees that work hard and need their job, punish the person or persons responsible, dont punish the whole town by having a loss of jobs. i do not work there nor do i no anyone who does, but i do no that jobs are already hard to come by and the town should not have to pay for this.
