One Dead in Construction Accident

A Seabrook, South Carolina, man is dead after being pinned between two sections of a double-wide mobile home. It happened at the Riverview Mobile Home Park in Port Royal, South Carolina.

Police say Theolonius Davis, 44, was helping install a mobile home when one of the concrete supports gave way. Half of the home fell off its concrete support and Davis got trapped between the two segments.

Workers flagged down a passing officer.

"Workers at the time the officer arrived or was patrolling though, they were actually trying to get him out using a two-by-four as leverage to get him out," said Det. John Griffith of the Port Royal police.

Davis died after being transported to a hospital.
