SEATTLE, WA — The Seattle Police Department says a man is dead after falling from a gravel barge into the Duwamish Waterway.  This is the location of the Cadman Heidelberg Cement group.  That Seattle location is an Aggregate & Ready-Mix Location.

Detective Mark Jamieson, a department spokesman, says the 37-year-old was working on the barge, which was trying to tie up at a concrete plant at about 4:40 a.m. Thursday when a line broke and struck him.

The Seattle Fire Department says the man was been pulled from the water, but died at the scene.

Jamieson says police expect the Coast Guard and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration to investigate.

Cadman makes aggregates for every type of construction project - no matter what the size. We supply aggregates for everything, from large commercial to home-improvement projects.

In addition to materials for new construction, Cadman recycles excavated dirt and old asphalt and concrete. We crush and size it to make usable products - instead of filling up landfills. We market recycled glass, which is great for drainage gravel and wall backfill. Backhaul sites that accept clean fill are located at Black Diamond and North Bend.
For more information on what is defined as acceptable backhaul or to find a site that accepts this product, please contact our dispatch office at (425) 961-7100.
