Thomas William Mauck Killed in Accident in Morganton, NC

Morganton, NC -- A work-related incident in Morganton, NC claimed the life of 27-year-old Thomas William Mauck Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

Police officials claim Mr. Mauck was working on the roof of Leviton when for reasons unclear he fell off the roof. It appears the victim was trying to open a fire vent door when the door hit him in the head. Mr. Mauck then fell through the vent door.

The door, known as a scuttle hatch, is reportedly spring loaded. It seems when the hatch sprung open, the force of the door opening pulled Mr. Mauck over the hatch and onto the warehouse floor below.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
