Shipyard Worker Injured

A shipyard worker was seriously injured in an accident near Chula Vista harbor in California over the weekend. According to Signs on San Diego, the man was working with a crew on disassembling a 124-foot-long barge at the Marine Group Boat Works shipyard. At some point, a beam that the man believed was still attached to the barge, fell on his head and face. He suffered serious facial lacerations, and injured his trachea.

Fire crews transferred to the man to the University of California San Diego Medical Center, where he has now been placed in a medically induced coma. His condition is reported to be critical.

According to police, there was no foul play involved in this incident. The man was wearing a hard hat at the time that could not protect him from facial and neck injuries.
