Remembering Lincoln worker killed on the job
"He was figuring his life out, he had plans you know.. He had big plans and he was getting them all back together and it was just stopped like a blink of an eye," said Aaron McThenia.
28 year–old Cameron McThenia tragically died in a work place accident on Monday. He was working at a concrete recycling yard near 70th and Arbor.
A steel grate fell on top of him, pinning him. By the time rescue crews got there, it was too late.
One of Cameron’s best friends made it a routine to visit him every Monday. He saw Cameron a few hours before the accident.
"Words can’t even describe you know the type of man he was.. You could go to him and ask him for anything, he could fix anything.. He was just all around a well rounded guy," said Zach Caves.
Cameron was very big into outdoor activities. His brother described him as the fun uncle.
"I was hoping that once my kids got older bringing them around him. Him teaching them how to hunt and fish and everything with that.. That was one of the things he could have taught them," said Aaron.
Both Zach and Aaron told us that Cameron would say the most random things, but it would make everyone laugh.
"It’s a shame that you never got to meet him if you hadn’t met him, because he definitely would have changed your life, one way or another," said Aaron.
Friends and family have set up a Go Fund Me page to help Cameron’s family with funeral and memorial costs.
