Jeffboat Workplace Accident

An open investigation looks into an employee's death due to a workplace accident.

On Wednesday, Clark County Coroner Terry Conway released a statement concerning a Jeffboat employee's recent death in Jeffersonville, Indiana:

"An autopsy was performed this morning on Mr. Sergio Torriente, age 40, of Louisville, by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, located in Louisville, Kentucky. Mr. Torriente was found unresponsive on the jobsite at JeffBoat, on July 28th. A preliminary cause of death was found to be hypertensive cardiovascular disease and an enlarged heart. At this time, his death appears to be natural. However, these results are preliminary, and are pending toxicological testing, which is standard procedure."

Autopsy and toxicology results are still pending.
