Steel Dynamics Worker Killed
By WISE Web News


COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (AP) (Indiana's NewsCenter)- A northern Indiana man has died in an
accident at a steel plant.
Authorities say 58-year-old Cory G. Cochlin of Columbia City
died Thursday night at Steel Dynamics Inc. when he was run over by
a large vehicle.
Whitley County Coroner Scott Smith says an autopsy showed that
Cochlin died of massive blunt-force trauma at the plant about 20
miles west of Fort Wayne.
Cochlin worked for a company that hauls slag - a byproduct of
smelting - from the steel plant.
His death is the first at Steel Dynamics' Columbia City plant
since December 2006, when a worker died when two 3-ton steel beams
fell on his chest.
