Gossips received this press release from the Hudson Police Department.
On Monday, October 24, 2022, at approximately 11:21 a.m., the Hudson Police Department (HPD) received a call from Columbia County 911 reporting that the Greenport Rescue Squad (GRS) was dispatched to the area of the 200 block of Long Alley in the City of Hudson for a report of a dumpster that had fallen on top of a man at that location.
All available HPD units responded to the scene to assist Greenport Rescue Squad. Officer Kevin Keyser and GRS attempted lifesaving measurers, including CPR, without any success. The victim, an employee of the disposal company, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Detectives spoke to witnesses, and it appears the dumpster dropped onto the victim while it was being lowered from a truck. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was notified of the work accident.
