REBECCA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities have identified a worker who was killed in an industrial accident in south Georgia.

Turner County Sheriff Andy Hester tells WALB-TV (http://bit.ly/1CHFl6j ) a front-end loader crushed 61-year-old Isabel Gomez while he was working on a hydraulic system at an agricultural business Thursday morning.

Hester says Gomez and his brother were both working on equipment when lift arms fell on him. Hester says Gomez’s brother was also caught in the equipment but was able to escape.

Hester says Gomez was pronounced dead on the scene and details on what caused the lift arms to fall wasn’t immediately available.
