Man killed at Eden Stone as a result of work related accident

Emergency crews responded to a situation at Eden Stone Company yesterday afternoon where a man was killed.

At 3:57 P.M. the Fond du Lac County Communication Center received a 911 call of a man who was pinned under equipment that had fallen at the Eden Stone Company, located at N4500 CTH V in the Town of Eden.

When deputies arrived, the man had no pulse and wasn’t breathing despite staff at Eden Stone doing CPR on the man. Deputies and fire personal also attempted life saving measures but their efforts were unsuccessful. The 50-year-old West Bend man was pronounced deceased at the scene of the accident.

Initial investigation shows that employees were unloading a large steel piece of a new stone saw from a semi-truck. The piece of steel became unstable and tipped over on its side trapping the man. Employees were quickly able to free him from being trapped within seconds of the accident. There were no other injuries as a result from the incident. The victim of the incident was said to be an employee at Eden Stone.

Assisting the sheriff’s office at the scene was Eden Fire Department and First Responders, City of Fond du Lac Ambulance, and Campbellsport Ambulance.
