TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa authorities have identified the man who was killed when fallen pipes came crashing down on him and three other men working inside a ship.
A Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office report says 56-year-old Hercules Gilmore died after Tuesday's accident.
Authorities say Gilmore and three others were employed as stevedores for the International Longshoreman's Association. They were at the bottom of the ship's cargo hold bundling steel pipes for a crane to lift them when a strap on the bundle broke, sending the pipes crashing down on them.
Gilmore was pronounced dead on the scene. A second man has non-life threatening injuries. The other two were not injured.
Tampa Fire Rescue responded to the scene.
The accident happened when the ship was at the Port of Tampa.
