A killing field
Tired of the long hours, Mike THIESSEN, 22, had planned to quit his farming job today, but fate intervened.
By John HERBERT, Thurs., October 5, 2006
Death, injuries intensify focus on farm safety
Tragedy Strikes: The area behind the school bus is where Mike THIESSEN, 22, was struck down by a single lightning bolt that killed him and left a group of Mexican exchange workers with burns. (Susan BRADNAM, The London Free Press)
Mount Salem -- Farm worker Mike THIESSEN planned to quit his job today because he didn't like the long hours.
Instead, his family is planning his funeral.
The 22-year-old was hit by lightning and killed just before 9 a.m. yesterday while grading peppers with a crew of five migrant workers from Mexico on a farm on Calton Line, southeast of Aylmer, near his home.
The five Mexicans, who had been standing near THIESSEN in the partially flooded field -- drenched by heavy thunderstorms overnight and into yesterday morning -- were knocked to the ground and suffered burns. They were taken to hospital in Saint Thomas for non life-threatening injuries.
According to the Farm Safety Association, THIESSEN's death was the first lightning-related farm death in 15 years.
THIESSEN had worked the past two years on the farm.
"He was the best worker they had -- he wanted to quit on Thursday," said his sister, Mary Anne WIEBE.
"They didn't even know he was going to quit," said WIEBE, as Friends and family grieved at the THIESSEN home, also on Calton Line in Mount Salem. "He was so sick of it."
THIESSEN and the workers from Mexico worked on a farm owned by Richard DELEEBEECK. The Mexicans were on a worker exchange program.
THIESSEN, hoping to lead a more normal life, wanted to return to a job with Simcoe Leaf.
WIEBE said THIESSEN, who recently became an uncle, loved playing with her three-month-old boy, Aiden, and fixing up Chevy cars. He dreamed of becoming a mechanic.
He was at the Dwight Yoakam concert at the John Labatt Centre in London on Tuesday night and arrived home late, but he was ready to work in the pepper field by 7 a.m. yesterday.
"He did everything for them sometimes, working until 3 in the morning. He had no life," said his 16-year-old brother, Bobby.
THIESSEN's parents, Peter and Justina THIESSEN, who drive a transport-trailer truck, were expected to fly home last night from California.
Neighbours and Friends in the area said there was no lightning or thunder before the storm hit -- and that a single bolt appeared to have hit THIESSEN without warning. There were metal poles, used to hold up a cover shading the ginseng crop, just a few metres from the work crew.
"There was just one bolt," said neighbour Raymond DELEEBEECK, who farms near where the lightning hit. "I heard it but I was in the barn and it was raining hard."
Richard DELEEBEECK, Raymond's brother, wasn't available for comment but his adult son, Nick, said his father had been concerned about the dangerous weather approaching.
Nick DELEEBEECK said about 30 Mexicans work on the farm.
"The Spanish guys said there was one crack… what the heck can you do,?" Nick DELEEBEECK said. "It was just raining and dad told Mike if it starts to lightning, get the hell out of there. At seven (a.m.), he held off sending them out because of storms. They started grading about eight. Dad specifically said to Mike to get on the bus (parked in the field) and leave if there was lightning.
"About 15 minutes later, dad got a call that a worker had been hit."
Nick DELEEBEECK said his father immediately went to the scene, arriving before the fire department, and saw three of THIESSEN's co-workers sitting on the ground "in shock."
"Whether they got jolted… I don't know," he said. "What I was told is three got knocked over."
A few minutes after the lightning strike, the THIESSEN family was told Mike THIESSEN had been in an accident.
"They think he died instantly," Mary Anne WIEBE said.
The Labour Ministry is investigating.
About Lightning
How close is it?
Count the seconds between the flash and the thunder clap. Each second represents about 300 metres. If you count less than 30 seconds, take shelter immediately. Stay there for at least 30 minutes after last thunder.
If caught outdoors
- Keep a safe distance from tall objects, such as trees, hilltops, and utility poles. - Avoid being the highest point in an open area, or carrying anything that makes you the highest point. Seek shelter in low-lying areas but beware of flooding. - If caught in a level field far from shelter and you feel your hair stand on end, lightning may be about to hit you. Kneel with feet together and hands on your knees and bend forward. Don't lie flat. - If in a group, spread people several metres apart. - Stay away from water. - Avoid objects that conduct electricity. Take off shoes with metal cleats. - You are safe inside a car during lightning, but don't park near trees or tall objects and beware downed power lines.
If someone is hit by lightning
They do not carry an electrical charge and can be safely handled. Victims should receive immediate first aid, include rescue breathing and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation if necessary. Call 911.
