(8-2-19) Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey announced today that his office was called to the scene of an industrial accident at 7:56 AM located at 5424 Watkins Road, St. Henry.

A caller advised that a male was using a Genie Tele handler to lift items into the air to a platform and had attempted to step onto the vehicle in an attempt to unload it. That would cause the load to shift and the victim to fall approximately 30’ to the ground onto concrete.

Despite CPR given at the scene, the victim, Alexis Ivan Gutierrez Sanvicente (23) of Weisser Park Ave., Ft. Wayne, Indiana, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Also at the scene were St. Henry EMS and First Responders.
