Migrant worker killed at farm
Tuesday, May 23, 2006
Saugeen Shores - A 39-year-old migrant worker was killed Saturday in a freak accident in Saugeen Shores.
Samuel GIL, a worker from Mexico on Hi-Berry Farms, which is located between Southampton and Port Elgin on Highway 21, was loading asparagus onto the back of a truck when the truck accidentally backed over him.
GIL, a husband and father of six, had returned to Hi-Berry Farms each year for the past five years to take part in planting and harvesting on the fresh-produce farm. [Death notice named him as GIL- MONTESINOS, Samuel Maurilio]
"We lost not just a worker," said the company's co-owner, Luke CHARBONNEAU, "he was also a friend."
CHARBONNEAU said they are trying to make arrangements to bring his wife to the area, so she can escort her husband's body back to Mexico.
"It's a tragic time for all of us," he said.
Driver and co-worker Abel RODRIGUEZ, also from Mexico, gave a statement to the police Sunday and it is not expected that any charges will be laid.
CHARBONNEAU said an autopsy is being performed today and funeral director Kent MILROY in Port Elgin is making the necessary arrangements to have GIL's body flown back to Mexico.
A news release from Saugeen Shores Police Service said GIL was taken by ambulance to the Grey Bruce Health Services Southampton site, where he was treated but succumbed to his injuries.
The Saugeen Shores Traffic Unit, along with the Ontario Provincial Police Technical Traffic Unit, were called in to assist, the release said. Saugeen Shores police Sgt. Ron CUILLERIER said the accident is still under investigation.
