Worker Feared Dead in Silo Collapse

A worker who became trapped when a concrete powder storage silo collapsed in Bristol Township, PA Thursday, is presumed dead, according to multiple reports.

The worker at Riverside Cement has been identified by family members as 49-year-old Tony Gabriele.

A Bristol Township police officer on routine patrol discovered the collapsed silo at the Riverside Industrial Complex at about 1 a.m. Thursday. The last shift at the plant ended at about 11:30 p.m.

According to Bristol Township emergency management director Kevin Dippolito, the search for Gabriele could take several days. The silo was 125 ft tall and some of the piles of concrete are reportedly 50 ft deep.
