FedEx worker found frozen to death outside Illinois facility
This is so sad. Someone said he was with Freight.
Captain Darren Gault of the East Moline Police Department said the 69-year-old victim was discovered between two semi-trailers outside the freight facility by another FedEx employee around 9:30 a.m.
They said he had been there since Tuesday.
Hard to believe nobody saw him or missed him sooner.
That was at our local Freight terminal.
What a terrible way to go.
They were closed Wednesday. Very sad situation.
Jesus... How did he go so long without anyone noticing? That's horrible.
This is extremely sad.
My condolences go out to his family and friends.
I was a little disappointed that we shut down just because I thought we could get something done. But really, if a vehicle becomes stranded with the engine shut down, we could easily have seen more deaths in the area.
My brother lives in Princeton and said his car wouldn’t start Wednesday and Thursday. The company he works for was closed for two days.
Yep. It was crazy cold.
I'm shocked nobody at express froze to death, we all worked wensday and Thursday that I'm aware of...I put in 14 hr days both days...
we went pills, perishables, and hospitals only for the coldest days.
They let you guys take pills? They test us for that. Lucky.
I'm surprised we all don't freeze to death with the thin, cheap jackets we have. It's ashame we can't get warm clothing.
Autopsy finds Illinois FedEx worker died of fall, not cold
Kind of sad people were blaming the company for working during the cold when they didn't know the facts.
Yeah. I bet it breaks your heart.
