Farmington Hills, MI — A worker who was badly injured earlier this month in Farmington Hills at the Piedmont Concrete Inc. plant — 37-year old Greg Messenger — has died. Authorities said that Messenger passed away last Thursday (January 15, 2015) after having been badly burned on January 8 in an accident.
The Piedmont Concrete facility is about 10 mile northwest of Detroit. On January 8, Gregg Messenger was working there when an accident happened and a fire broke out. Messenger was unfortunately trapped inside a large storage tower, which is where the fire started, and received many burns on his body, arms, and face as a result.
He was taken to a hospital and given treatment, but passed away from his injuries roughly a week later. Also injured in the fire were six other employees, but they have all since reoccurred. The fire may have started during a construction project, as the storage tower where it broke out may have been in the process of being restored.
More investigation is expected.
