Blue Bird employee found unconscious in bathroom, dies
News


UPDATE: July 20, 2:45 p.m.

Peach County coroner Kerry Rooks says the death of an employee at Fort Valley's Blue Bird plant apparently was not caused by the heat.

An autopsy was performed Monday on Clinton Jenkins. He was found unconscious in the bathroom of the Fort Valley bus plant Thursday and later died.

Rooks says the GBI found that Jenkins died from natural causes, but "it wasn't heat related or anything like that."

Jenkins had previous health problems and lost over 50 pound in less than a year, the coroner said.

He may have died from a lung ailment. Rooks said GBI medical examiners may have a more definitive cause of death later this week.
