Worker killed at West Milwaukee manufacturer



WEST MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) -- A 57-year-old worker at a West Milwaukee manufacturer is dead after a piece of sheet metal fell on top of him.


The accident happened about 11 a.m. Tuesday at Galland Henning Nopak Inc., which manufactures pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders and valves, and scrap recycling equipment.

The man's name has not been released. But his wife told WISN-TV that he had worked at the manufacturer since he was 16 years old.

West Milwaukee police and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating.
