Teen Charged with Manslaughter of Co-worker

REPORTER: News Staff,-

Rodel Hernandez, a construction worker of San Carlos Village, Orange Walk, was arraigned before Magistrate Michelle Trapp. He had reportedly admitted to accidentally turning on the switch to the machine, causing his co-worker to become trapped and mangled inside the mixer that night. It took BERT technicians and personnel from the Belize Fire Service two hours to free Hernandez, but he died enroute to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

The victim’s family members are not pleased. They feel that Rodel Hernandez knew Jeffrey Hernandez was inside the machine and intentionally turned on the switch. They are also not pleased with the company, which did not call the Police until the following morning after the incident.

The family laid Jeffrey Hernandez to rest last week Friday, the same day that Victor Rodel Hernandez was arraigned. They hope that they will be able to convince someone dealing with the case that there is more to what has been reported.

Jeffrey Hernandez had only been on the job at AP Enterprises cement block factory near mile four off the George Price Highway one week when he was churned inside a cement mixer while cleaning the machine last week Monday night.
