A worker was killed in an industrial accident in Wichita, Kan. A 6-ton tank shifted unexpectedly and fell on 22-year-old Tony Losey while he was sandblasting it. Losey was under a tarp outside Boardman working on the tank when it fell onto him on Sept. 23. Losey was a subcontractor at the steel plate fabricator. It was reported that the tanks fall several times a year. Most of the time workers are able to get out of the way. Losey was a well-known amateur boxer in Wichita who planned to pursue an Olympic spot in 2016. As of July, USA Boxing ranked Losey third nationally in its 152-pound weight class.
