My great great great uncle was run over by a bulldozer on a ranch in Wyoming in the '50s. He went between the tracks, but got pinched between the blade and a rock as the bulldozer went backwards down a hill, unmanned. It broke his back, but he crawled to his house nearby. His wife gave him a dose of morphine, dragged him into the bed of their pickup truck, and drove him 20 miles to the nearest hospital over dirt roads. He learned to walk again, but died from a stroke 3 years later.

CSB time. I'm a 911 dispatcher. About a year ago, I had a call for a guy who had been working at an auto wrecking business for 2 weeks. He was operating a forklift, managed to fall out and got run over by his own forklift. He died immediately.

It's actually quite surprising how many people are killed in a similar manner every year.....forklifts, evil killing machines, they are....

/seriously, there are a bunch of deaths every year from people falling off forklifts and then getting crushed by the same machine, either as it flops over on its side or runs them over

a dozer isn't so much going to flatten a body....more likely, the tracks are going to do some pretty gnarly damage to flesh and bones...

You work at construction sites long enough (hell, an hour or so) and backup alarms just become "noise"....

CsB. An uncle died while working on a bulldozers tread at a construction site, the operator didnt put the brake on and they were standing nearby. Uncle was welding the tread when it slipped out of gear and it started rolling right over him. He tried to get away but his leg got caught under it, they said it only took a few seconds, but still wasnt fast enough to stop the screaming. The guy who forgot the brake didnt seem to care, but the other guys around, it messed them up pretty good, whatever they saw, heard.

Maybe they thought they had a bike pump in there to re inflate him.

A co-worker operating a bulldozer was backing up and never saw Brandon, and rolled over the 23-year-old's body.
"I came back and he blew up like a balloon," Reginald Peterson said.


Huh?

(a) He came back days later and the process of decomposition caused the corpse to inflate like a balloon?
(b) The guy went BANG! and little shreds of him went flying all over the place?
(c) The guy went Ppbbbthththbthththththbthththt flying all over the place until he completely deflated?
(d) The bulldozer ran over half of him, and squeezed the stuff in the flat half into the other half of him?

Around here it isn't terribly uncommon for ambulances to transport a body to the funeral home in the case of a natural death.

In this case, since he got run over by a bulldozer I'm sure the police and other authorities probably wanted to do a little investigating and that takes time.

I've stood around for hours waiting for accident investigators to finish their job before we can extricate a deceased victim from a wrecked vehicle.  I do feel for the families.  It is bad enough that they know their loved one is dead, but having them just laying there has to make it seem even worse.  We always try to respect the victim as much as possible by doing things like positioning apparatus to block the view of bystanders but there's only so much you can do.

JustGetItRight: Around here it isn't terribly uncommon for ambulances to transport a body to the funeral home in the case of a natural death.


In many places, it's a contracted body removal company or the ME themselves who transport. I know locally, the 911 responders do NOT transport someone they have pronounced dead, because they have to be cleared by local law enforcement to do so prior to leaving the scene. Our policy is to wait until the local PD or SO arrives on scene, hand over chain of custody to them, and then clear and get back in service or en route for resupply and decon.

We actually wait on scene in cases of expected natural death until either police or funeral home get there, and then they transport.

JustGetItRight: I've stood around for hours waiting for accident investigators to finish their job before we can extricate a deceased victim from a wrecked vehicle.  I do feel for the families.  It is bad enough that they know their loved one is dead, but having them just laying there has to make it seem even worse.  We always try to respect the victim as much as possible by doing things like positioning apparatus to block the view of bystanders but there's only so much you can do.


I know in our case, we drape a man-tarp, salvage sheet or stretcher sheet over the body, or bag them depending on the request of the scene investigator, but we don't transport them. While I feel for the families, we have 10 ambulances covering 180,000 people.
