Glass shatters, killing Walton Hills plant worker

25-year-old Twinsburg man was killed last week when a 6- by 7-foot piece of glass he was carrying shattered and cut his neck at a Northfield Road glass manufacturing plant, police said.

Dominic Jerome Childs and another employee at Edge Seal Technologies Inc. had pulled the large piece of glass from a slot in the warehouse just before noon Friday when they heard a cracking sound, a police report said.

The glass broke and shattered, and a piece hit Childs in the front right side of his neck. Rescue workers took the heavily bleeding Childs by ambulance to Northfield Park Racetrack, where a helicopter landed at 12:16 p.m. Childs was flown to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 1 p.m.
