An 18-year-old worker at a Luck Stone quarry in Ashburn, Va., has been found dead following a silo collapse at the operation. The silo collapsed Monday morning, and authorities had been searching for Daniel Potter until the discovery of his body yesterday. The Washington Post reports that officials are investigating the cause of the silo failure.

Charlie Luck IV, company president and CEO, said, “We are a family here at Luck Companies and today we lost a family member. Our hearts go out to the associate’s family and they will remain in our thoughts and prayers.”
