Man Killed in Accident Identified

(7/31/13) A man killed in an industrial accident in La Crosse is identified as 40-year-old Eric Lecher.

Police and company officials said Lecher was doing routine maintenance on a cold furnace – and he fell into the unit head-first. It happened early Monday at Torrance Casting in La Crosse. The company said Lecher was repairing a liner that's inside of the furnace. Police said Lecher may have been trapped in the unit for an hour-and-a-half before a co-worker found him. The furnace was off at the time. The U-S Occupational Safety-and-Health Administration is investigating the mishap.
