Excavator loses battle with concrete chunk

Wellens Construction excavator operator Grant Morgan attempts to hoist a very large chunk of concrete into the back of a truck at the newly-refurbished Hillock Insurance Company Building in Enterprise on Thursday, June 26. He was able to lift it only a few inches before the excavator lost the battle. "It was a lot heavier than it looked," said Wellens construction supervisor Aron Wallace. Ultimately the concrete was pushed and rolled out of the way. "We'll just have to break it up later," Wallace said.
