— A man injured in an accident Monday at Greystone Concrete Products in Henderson has died.

A company spokesman said Tuesday that Earl Floyd, 49, fell about 40 feet from a catwalk along a conveyor belt at the factory, 2100 N. Garnett St., in Henderson.

He landed on concrete and suffered serious injuries. He was transported to Maria Parham Hospital, where he died.

The catwalk had corroded with time, a Greystone Concrete official said. Floyd worked for the company for about 25 years, the official said.

Another worker got trapped on top of a piece of equipment . That man did not appear to be injured and refused medical treatment.
