Second Victim of Omaha Plant Collapse Identified


Authorities have released the name of the second worker killed in an industrial accident at the International Nutrition plant in Omaha.

The man has been identified as 47-year-old David Ball, of Omaha.

Police said Ball's relatives were notified Tuesday, shortly after his body was retrieved from the International Nutrition building that collapsed the day before. Interim Fire Chief Bernard Kanger says authorities believe no other people are in the building.

The accident also killed 53-year-old Keith Everett, whose body was recovered Monday night, and injured 17.

Kanger says both of the men who died were found on the second floor of the south Omaha plant, but the bodies were not near each other.

Authorities are still trying to determine the cause of the accident.
