An accident claimed the life of a Bronx, New York City man on Monday, November 6, 2023. Francisco Lumbreras, the victim, was engaged in maintenance work inside a cement mixing truck when he was caught and killed by the vehicle’s rotating shaft.
The tragic event occurred at a construction site in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the Bronx. The police were notified and arrived at the scene following the report of the incident.
Emergency teams reached the site to find Lumbreras, 46, ensnared in the truck’s machinery. Despite all rescue efforts, he was ultimately declared dead at the scene.
The accident took place during routine cleaning operations and has now sparked a comprehensive investigation by local authorities. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is expected to carry out a thorough inquiry into the safety measures and work practices in place at the time of the accident.
Lumbreras was employed at CNB Contracting. When contacted, a representative from the company declined to comment on the incident.
The ongoing investigation will closely examine the maintenance procedures on the cement mixing truck and assess whether any safety protocols were ignored or violated. As of this time, no criminal charges have been filed, and the authorities have yet to release further details on the circumstances that led to Lumbreras’s death.
