Michigan man killed in workplace accident involving debarking machine

OSCODA COUNTY, MI – The Oscoda County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the workplace death of a man in Northern Michigan.

9&10 News reports that 59-year-old Lyle Troyer of Fairview died in a suspected accident which occurred at a lumberyard/sawmill in Comins Township around 9 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13.

Deputies were called to the scene to help free a man from a debarking machine, the TV station reported. EMS attempts to revive Troyer at the scene were unsuccessful.

“As most of you have heard by now yesterday Lyle was killed in a accident out at the mill,” Syrena Troyer wrote on Facebook. “We are in shock yet as to be expected. I so appreciate all my prayer warriors that God has put in our lives. We are so blessed to have the support of family, church family and community. Thank you.”
