You’d think that working on the job for 43 years and being 66 years old would be a time for retirement, but in the case of Bill Drake it wasn’t. This man died at work when he fell onto tracks and a wood-loaded crane running on those same tracks struck and killed him. This was certainly a sad day at the International Paper Mill in South Augusta, Georgia. A well respected member of the mill workers he certainly will be missed. We wish his family well.
Follow the first link to see photos of Mr. Drake.
For a birds-eye view of the paper mill follow this link to see the National Geological Survey aerial photograph. The site is Wikimapia. The train tracks can be seen going through the center of the photographic image of International Paper.
