A civilian contractor was killed Monday at the Boone National Guard Center in Frankfort when a snorkel boom lift collapsed and fell.
The Associated Press reported that Brandon Cloud, 23, of Harlan County died at the site after the 11:45 a.m. boom-lift collapse, according to the coroner.
Another contractor was injured and taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital for treatment, National Guard spokesman David Altom said. The two were using the lift to install siding on an aircraft hangar at the center.
The name of the injured man was not released.
Never miss a local story.
The Kentucky Labor Cabinet will be part of the accident investigation, Altom said.
