Ensuring our streets and sanitation work is an honorable job, but when safety measures go wrong, it can lead to tragedy. We put safety measures in place in various jobs so that everyone is safe and comes home to loved ones.
We at Kurzban, Kurzban, Tetzeli, and Pratt P.A., our Honolulu wrongful death attorneys, want to discuss a local incident that took a father of five away from his family simply by doing his job.
Dean Kealoha Hoe was using a sewage pump in the basement of an apartment complex when Hoe fell into the sewer. Fire crews got the victim out of the sewer, and he was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was working with someone else, but that person was not on the scene when this incident occurred.
In his free time, Hoe was a valued captain in the Polynesian Voyaging Society for over 20 years, and he left behind five children. Better safety precautions in his dangerous work line could have saved Hoe’s life and let him continue sailing and spending time with his children.
