Man dies operating skid steer

Sadly, these incidents happen more often when operating solo.  With our prayers to the family, we share this story as a reminder of the precautions we must always take as operators.

From the Durango Herald:

Durango man was killed Monday when his skid steer slid into the Animas River, trapping him inside.

The machine toppled into the river on its roof. Workers broke out a window with a hammer but were unable to free the man. The machine’s cab was flooded, said Karola Hanks, Durango Fire Protection District fire marshal.
