The Enquirer

INDEPENDENCE - A Cincinnati man employed at LSI Metal Fabrication, 3871 Turkeyfoot Road, was taken by helicopter to the hospital Wednesday after a 400-pound weight fell on his head, police said.

The weight dropped from about 12 feet above Dusty Chambley, 22, at about 9:49 a.m. when bolts came off a piece of machinery, said police Lt. Tony Lucas."That's extreme, isn't it?" Fire Chief David Murphy said. "We were amazed."

Chambley, who was conscious after the accident, was flown to University Hospital. Chambley was still being treated Wednesday afternoon.
