Worker dies at Wakefield, Nebraska, plant

Nebraska workers go to work each day expecting they will return each night to their families. Most of the time this is what happens, but occasionally a tragic accident can occur at a workplace. Recently, an employee died in an accident at a Wakefield, Nebraska, manufacturing plant.

Workplace accidents can be devastating to Nebraska families

A job is more than just a place a Lincoln resident goes once they've had their breakfast. It is where they put in hard work, do their best and earn their livelihood so that they may provide their family with what it needs to grow and thrive. It enables a person to keep a roof over their head and to put food on their table. So, when a workplace accident happens that forces a person to stop doing the work that pays their bills, the results can be devastating to the individual and their loved ones.
