A Green River Parks and Recreation Department employee died after a work-related incident at the Green River Recreation Center last week.

Dave Hyer, a maintenance worker at the recreation center, was hospitalized after a lift Hyer was using tipped over at the recreation center’s gym Sept. 14.

According to city administrator Reed Clevenger, Hyer was working on a motor used to raise the basketball hoops in the gym using a lift. While working on the motor, the hoop near the lift started to raise, tipping the lift over. Hyer was transported to University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City. Hyer died Friday at the medical center.

“It’s definitely an unfortunate accident,” Clevenger said.
