    BRIDGEPORT - A man who died after being run over by a truck Sunday at the U. S. Gypsum plant in Bridgeport has been identified as Thomas Robert O'Reilly of Bridgeport.

    Authorities said O'Reilly, 74, was a security guard at the plant.

    He was taken to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga where he died a short time after the apparent accident.
    Its not how we die that counts.....
    Its not how we lived that counts....
    all that matters is how we saved that one life that one time by being in the right place at the right time....

    Our hearts go out to the family and co-workers.

    Stories like this remind me of working on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. Which also applies to many facilities that one may work at. "Keep your head on a swivel" and pay attention to your surroundings.

      A sad reminder that the hazards involved in our work are not just the bad guys.

        Just a reminder to add to the previous posts here,

        YOU ARE MUCH MORE LIKELY TO DIE BY WAY OF BEING KILLED BY A VEHICLE, THEN BY ANY OTHER MEANS, and that can often include at your work site.

        Please be careful out there.
