SOUTH TOLEDO -- An area construction company faces a fine for the death of a worker last July. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined Mosser Construction $5,000 for the death of Tom Zunk of Fremont.
Zunk was one of several Mosser workers building a pump station at Toledo's new wastewater treatment plant. He was helping to dismantle a crane when an 8-ton counterweight fell from the crane and crushed him.
Rescuers were called to the scene, but Zunk was pronounced dead. He was a Teamster mechanic and an 18-year veteran of the company. He was married, with two daughters.
OSHA fined Mosser for not operating the crane to specifications.
