He was an equipment operator at Lincoln-based T.N.T. Earth Moving, an Occupational Safety and Health Administration spokeswoman said Tuesday.
McThenia was operating a rock grizzly, a large steel piece of equipment that separates rock and was attached to the elevated bucket of a Caterpillar vehicle, Lincoln police spokeswoman Officer Angela Sands said.
He exited the front end loader to talk to a co-worker and the grate, believed to weigh more than six tons, fell on him, the OSHA spokeswoman said.
OSHA investigators will look into the accident.
