53 year old John J. Sedita was using a forklift to unload bundles of fence at around 9:30 am at Cook Fence Company off West Street in Newport on Saturday. For an unknown reason, a bundle of fencing fell from the side of the trailer and onto John Sedita as he worked on unloading one side of the truck.

John Sedita was rushed to St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Utica, but he tragically succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead. The accident remains under open investigation at this time to determine cause and liability.
