Yonkers, NY -- The owner of a construction company was crushed to death when a crane fell on him while working in Manhattan.
Trevor Loftus, 40, was killed on Saturday at 11:50am. He owned Kenry Construction and was operating a crane. He noticed a leak and stopped to inspect it. The crane dropped and pinned him. He later died of his injuries.
Loftus was a native of Ireland. He played soccer and hurling at club Pallaskenry GAA. After his playing days, he was a supporter and assisted in fundraising.
Trish O'Dows, treasurer of the club, said, "He was a good club man and in later years supported our fundraisers. He always put his mam and younger brothers first in anything and was a great family man. Obviously we are raw since his death and hope he sleeps in peace."
