Human remains removed from a cement storage silo in Miami were identified as those of the Titan America worker who fell during a roof collapse last month, authorities said Wednesday.
Pierre Mezidor, 58, of North Miami, died after the silo’s roof collapsed the morning of Aug. 17 as he was measuring how much cement was stored inside. His remains were removed from the silo and transported to the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner, Miami-Dade Police said.
The original search for Mezidor turned from a rescue to a recovery operation after he was not found nor showed any signs of life or communication on the day of the roof collapse.
The industrial accident is still being investigated by the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Homicide Bureau.
