The Anoka County Sheriff's Office confirmed on Sunday that Amos Hagbe, of Brooklyn Center, died in the "industrial accident" on the morning of Wednesday, Nov 21.

He was carrying out a delivery of CO2 gas, otherwise known as dry ice, and was parked outside a McDonald's at 8124 Hwy. 62 NE. in Spring Lake Park when there was an apparent leak in the truck's cargo area.
