GOLD BEACH, OR -- A Redmond man was killed Monday outside Gold Beach, on the southern Oregon coast, in what appears to be a work-related accident.

 

Trevor Ramirez worked for Bend-based Apex Explosives. Curry County Sheriff John Ward says He was drilling in a remote area, "Goat Rock is a big, huge rock pit area and Mr. Ramirez was trying to drill rock. The rock came off the side of the mountain and hit him, several rocks, and crushed him." Sheriff Ward tells KBND News, "A witness saw him, or saw a bunch of dust up above him where this rock pit was, saw the equipment was teetering back and forth. He ran up there and he found him." Emergency crews were immediately called, but he says, "By the time the medical arrived, he had passed away due to his injuries. He had some extensive internal injuries; I'm pretty sure of the cause of death."

 

The Goat Rock area is about 17 miles northeast of Gold Beach and Ward says it can be difficult getting emergency services to the remote area. OSHA is now investigating the incident.
