A tragic Winters industrial accident on May 30, 2014 claimed the lives of Marcus Zane Powell and Glenn Hodgson.
According to Winters Fire Chief Aaron McAlister, Marcus Zane Powell, 25, of Los Gatos, and Glenn Hodgson, 49, of Richmond, were in a basket connected to a crane suspended approximately 80 feet above ground when the basket detached from the crane system. The men fell onto a pile of timbers over a deep hole. The construction site was for the Winters Putah Creek Car Bridge. McAlister said it would be impossible to survive a fall of that nature. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
The men worked for Disney Construction, Inc., based in Burlingame. Cal/OSHA began an investigation of the incident.
