A man died after a wrecking ball came loose and struck him, a February 26 article of KOCO reported.

The incident happened around 2:45 PM, at a ranch in the northern part of Johnston County. A construction company was moving and leveling silos at the ranch and the victim was working at the site. While he was working, a wrecking ball detached to a crane, swung down, and struck the man. First responders tried to revive him, but he was unfortunately pronounced deceased at the scene. Preliminary investigations found no signs of foul play, but authorities will look into the accident further.
