31-year-old dad dies in accident at Battle Lumber in Wadley
WADLEY, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A 31-year-old father died this week in an apparent industrial accident at Battle Lumber in Wadley.
The accident Wednesday claimed the life of Trenton Lewis, according to the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office.
Lewis was from Metter, and a friend said he leaves behind a wife and two children.
He was a wonderful father who worked hard for his family, said a family friend.
He leaves behind two daughters, Charlie, who is 9, and Pruitt, who is 3.
According to another friend, he was caught in a machine at the mill and pallet company, although that couldn’t be confirmed with the company and authorities.
It appeared to be an accident, but a final determination on that will be made by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab, according to authorities.
The body hasn’t yet been taken to the lab due to a backlog there, according to the coroner.
