Man killed in logging accident identified

The man killed in a logging accident near Harrison Wednesday has been identified as Maximino Perez-Hernandez, 29, of Honduras.

Perez-Hernandez was employed as a sawyer for Worman & Associates on a work visa, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department.

He was apparently struck by a tree sawed by another employee about 8:40 a.m. near Burma Road and Emerald Drive, east of Lake Coeur d’Alene, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Doug Worman, owner of the Hayden-based logging company, declined comment.

“At this time we’re still handling some details, so we really prefer to keep it private,” Worman said. “Especially with the family being out of the country.”

An autopsy is scheduled today.
