Construction Site Chaos: Worker buries boss

(WESH) – A Florida construction worker is accused of using heavy-duty equipment in an attack on his boss at a DeBary job site Wednesday.

“Please hurry somebody come out here, he just hit him with a level and is about to kill him,” another worker is heard telling a dispatcher on a 911 call.

The frantic call to 911 from the construction site in DeBary exposes the moments of terror workers witnessed, which left their supervisor with serious injuries, as they were working along 17-92 where a new Walmart store is being built.

“He hit him with what?” the dispatcher asked.

“A loader. Somebody tried to kill him on my job. Please send somebody out here,” the other worker said. “He ran him over and covered him up with dirt! Send somebody out there, please!”

Deputies say Erick Cox was operating a front-end loader when he had words with the site superintendent, Perry Byrd.

A witness told deputies that the fight escalated from expletives to an equipment-engineered attack, saying Cox then dumped a load of dirt onto his boss, pinning the man to the ground.
