    This was a family member to me. Even though he was an immigrant, he was here to work and had the legal right here to work. It was a terrible accident. His job should be responsible to help pay for the family's expense and having him shipped back to Honduras. This was a hard working and super sweet man. Didn't deserve to die. He was getting ready to go back to Honduras on 12/17/2009 to see his family for Christmas. For those who criticize, may the Lord have mercy on you. For those who donate and have said prayers, God Bless you all!!!!

    Workers Comp does not help pay the family's travel expenses, food, etc. Now that he has died, Worker's Comp will not help pay funeral expenses, the families expenses to return home, etc.

    The employer didnt ask for donations. It was the Sheriff of Onslow. Themans family is from Honduras, and do you have any sympathy for anyone. It is not always about ones self. I am sure it is for travel from Honduras to see there loved one. People please. Seek God.

    Check his status first... probably why he couldnt get insurance... not being mean about it, but seriously... check his immigrant status.

    Why is the County, who should have insurance to cover employees who are hurt on the job, asking the public for donations? My employer doesn't ask the public for donations if someone in my company were to get hurt. How about charging the thugs who are jailed for money to help pay for one of their employees mishaps...its called workers comp!!

    Don't people need to be tied on to something when they are at working in high places?
