Longshoreman dies after being crushed at Port of Long Beach
A longshoreman died Thursday night when he was crushed by a huge storage container at the Port of Long Beach.
The accident occurred about 7 p.m., and crews from the Long Beach Fire Department responded, according to a report on KTLA-TV Channel 5.
The container was apparently being moved by a crane when it fell. The accident was being investigated by the port's Harbor Patrol late Thursday.
No additional details were immediately available.
