His body was removed Friday afternoon, and will be sent to the state medical examiners office in Anchorage, which is standard practice for industrial accidents, according to Juneau Police Sergeant Chris Gifford.
The 25-ton crane tipped over yesterday afternoon, trapping Cody inside. Part of the crane was in the water and so unstable that he could not be pulled out. Chains were used to keep it from going over the side of a barge.
Juneau Police, Capital City Fire and Rescue and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to the incident about 3 p.m. Thursday. A police officer secured the scene overnight to make sure nothing was disturbed.
Early Friday afternoon, another crane was used to lift the crane while firefighters extracted the body. The second crane was barged to the site Friday morning.
The accident investigation continues, according to Gifford.
