CANTON, Ohio - A foundry worker was killed Thursday when he fell into an industrial pit and was covered in molten steel, authorities said.
Gordon Hickman, 41, was operating a massive ladle near the rim of the 35-foot pit just before noon when he fell into it, moments before the 2,600-degree steel was poured in, said Battalion Chief John Whitlatch of the Canton Fire Department.
A second employee at United Foundries Inc. suffered first- and second-degree burns over 20 percent of his body when went into the pit to try to save Hickman, Whitlatch said. The unidentified worker escaped the roughly 15-by-20-foot pit just as the steel was being poured.
It wasn't clear whether Hickman, of Homeworth, was killed by the fall or survived until the steel was poured. Whitlatch said the pour could not have been stopped in time.
Officials will have to wait several days until the steel cools to retrieve Hickman's remains.
The foundry produces large iron rollers used by steel mills. The company also has plants in Youngstown and South Africa.
 
That's horrible. Total admiration for the guy who went to try and save him though.
 
Damn.

In a week the pictures will probably be up at ogrish.com
 
whoa. :eek:

This is worse than the guy my torts professor represented who died in a vat of Cheese Whiz.

Poor guy :(
 
Jeez, that's horrible. So when the steel cools, wont it harden? Or will it still be liquidy, cause I imagine that's going to be a helluva lot of work to get to that body.

I IMAGINE THEY'LL HAVE TO USE A BLOW TORCH........BUT THERE WON'T BE MUCH LEFT OF HIM ANYWAY. :(
 
Ouch, do they know if it was suicide or just an accident?

I am 100% serious. He told us about it in torts class one day. The guy was ordered up on a ladder/suspended walkway that was not clean (grease, cheese particles etc on the rungs) he slipped and fell into one of the cheese whiz vats. We laughed at the story thinking he was joking...he looked at us like we were evil and told us it wasn't a joke. I've never heard a room go quiet so fast. I'll find you the case summary, it's really kinda sad.:(

He should have just tried to eat it all.
 
2,600 degree liquid steel. Will there be anything left of that guy to retrieve?

I don't no whether I should laugh or take a moment of silence :(
 
I'm thinking more of Rick Moranis in the beer vat in "Strange Brew"

Dave Thomas opens up the door and Moranis fills the entire vat, since he drank it all when he fell in
 
I thought I'd read about a man who fell into the pit and was like, so badass he gave a thumbs up before being consumed.
