Worker crushed, killed by concrete mixer in southeast Minnesota

A 63-year-old worker was killed when a concrete mixer drum fell and crushed him Monday at a manufacturing company in southeast Minnesota.

The worker was identified Tuesday as Teofilo Gonzalez, a 10-year employee of Con-Tech Manufacturing in Dodge Center, according to a Tuesday news release from Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose.

A 911 call came in around 10 a.m. Monday about an employee crushed at the plant. Deputies responded and found staff performing CPR on Gonzalez, Rose said. Co-workers said Gonzalez was cutting a crossbeam support on a dolly that was supporting a 5,000-pound mixer drum when the dolly failed and the mixer fell on him.
