POSTER # Logging 22-88
loading...

It was a small setting, consisting of a 200-foot strip below the road. The yarding crew, using a 90-foot spar, were just dumping the logs in the landing as a loader was on its way. When a three-log turn came in, the Chaser ran up the cold deck pile and unhooked one choker. When he jumped on the second log, the whole turn slid back and rolled. The Chaser was thrown down the pile on his back and the second log landed on his chest, causing fatal injuries.
