A- Herald: They're still trying to find him.
Pierre Mezidor was measuring the level of the dry cement powder from the roof of the silo when it gave way underneath him at about 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 17. The 58-year-old worker, originally from Haiti, had been working at the Tarmac Cement plant, which is owned by Titan America, for 19 years.B- Herald: Morin.
It’s been 10 days of a technically challenging — and emotionally distressing — operation to pull the roof remnants out of the 200-ft. tall silo and look for the body of the missing worker. The process has been complicated by the stormy weather conditions that continue to dump rain into the now open silo that was 70 percent full of cement powder. Without a roof protecting the material, the rainwater mixes with the gray dust in a way that doesn’t exactly create hardened concrete, but certainly makes it more difficult to dig through the debris, said Kate McClain, spokesperson for Titan America.
