BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Officials from a Kansas-based transportation company say a worker died in an accident at the Alabama Warrior Railway on Tuesday. The worker was a Birmingham native and, while the company has not released the man’s name, People Magazine’s website is reporting, through multiple sources, that it was Caleb Bankston.
Bankston, 26, was a former contestant on CBS’s Survivor. He appeared on the show’s 2013 season, titled “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”. He appeared alongside his fiancé, Colton Cumbie, finishing in ninth place.
The rail company tells WIAT 42 that they are making counselors available for his co-workers.
