Accidental Wall Collapse Determined as the Cause of Worker’s Death
John Jaloway was killed after an eight foot by eight foot concrete wall collapsed at the assembly plant located at 126th and Torrence Avenue. His death was the result of multiple blunt trauma injuries that he received during the collapse. He was 45 years old. Another worker attempted to rescue Jaloway during the incident and suffered critical injuries during the attempt.
