Man Crushed by Steel Beam in Boise

Katifcam

CALDWELL — An industrial accident at a Caldwell manufacturing plant has claimed the life of a Nampa man. Just before 11 a.m. Wednesday, Canyon County Sheriff’s deputies were called to Rule Steel at 11299 Bass Lane.  Firefighters with the Middleton Fire Department and Canyon County Paramedics also responded to the plant. Deputies say 53-year-old Roy Frasier was trying to move a 50,000-pound steel beam with a forklift when the beam fell off the forklift, trapping Frasier underneath. Other employees rushed to his aid and were able to move the beam off him, but he died from his injuries a short time later. The Canyon County coroner plans to conduct an autopsy on the victim Thursday morning. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be investigating the accident.
