NS Worker Dies in Shop Accident

A Norfolk Southern shop worker at the Enola Yard diesel shop in Pennsylvania died Wednesday after falling into a 40-foot deep pit.

News reports indicated that the 58-year-old man lost his balance and fell when a safety rail gave way.

Cumberland County Coroner Charley Hall said the cause of death was multiple traumatic injuries due to an accident.

The yard is located near Harrisburg and has until recent years employed about 300, most of them machinists and electricians.
