Dudes — this guy died in a spinning auger… wow!

ASPEN, Colo. – Authorities say a 39-year-old Minnesota man has died at a construction site near Aspen after his safety cord got tangled in a hard-rock construction drill and pulled him in to the spinning auger.

The man’s name, hometown and name of the Denver construction company that employed him weren’t released.

Pitkin County sheriff’s spokeswoman Renee Rayton told The Denver Post ( http://bit.ly/pioLq5) the accident happened Thursday afternoon in front of several co-workers. Rayton says the man was dead by the time co-workers could stop the geological drilling rig.
