KY Worker Injured in Fall at Jim Beam Plant

A worker at the Jim Beam plant in Kentucky was injured in a fall Wednesday.

According to officials with the company, the workplace accident occurred shortly after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. Officials say the man was working for a Lexington Roof Contractor at the plant when he was knocked off a warehouse roof by a gust of wind.

The injured worker and another man were applying rubber roofing at the time of the gust. The wind caused the rubber roofing to lift, pushing both men backwards. One worker landed on the roof, and the other suffered a fall of approximately 25 feet.

The man who landed on the roof was uninjured.

The nature and extent of the other worker’s injuries are not known. Company officials declined to comment on the possibility of long-term disability benefits for the man.
