Update: Missing Man Identified in Bucks County Silo Collapse

Worker is presumed dead as crews continue search.

Update (12:15 p.m.): The family has identified the man missing the the silo collapse that occurred early Thursday morning at the Riverside Industrial Complex in Bucks County as Tony Gabriele. 6ABC spoke with his brother, who said that Gabriele “was the only person working in the silo last night, and he was supposed to get off at midnight.”

The initial discovery of the collapse was made by a police officer around 12:30 a.m., who “first believed the dust in the air was snow.” As reported earlier, the silo was used to store powdered concrete. Gabriele’s body has not yet been recovered and, given that officials do not know his exact whereabouts during the time of the collapse, he is presumed to be dead.

Rescue crews are searching for a person trapped in the debris from an early-morning collapse of a silo at the Riverside Industrial Complex located at 7900 North Radcliffe Street in Bristol.

There are conflicting reports as to when the collapse first took place. The Inquirer reports that a patrol unit in the area discovered it around 12:30 a.m., with a 15-person rescue crew deployed around 3:15 a.m. to search for the trapped missing person. 6ABC reports that the building collapsed around 4:30 a.m.

The silo is one of three on site and was used to store powdered concrete produced by Silvi, a concrete company who also owns the industrial complex.
