Arkansas Man Dies While Helping During a Relief Effort
In a recently published article in THV11, several Arkansans have been sent to assist with the cleanup and restoration of electricity in Louisiana after Hurricane Ida. However, some residents of the state were working in a distribution warehouse in Little Rock to assist with the hurricane Ida recovery operations.
Marley Mencer, a line worker who died while on duty at the distribution warehouse, was one of them. He died as a result of his injuries. Meanwhile, it is still not clear if the family of the Arkansas man requested an in-depth investigation that caused the death of their loved one.
Mencer died on Friday, September 3 while working at the warehouse, according to Entergy Arkansas. Mencer worked for Howard Transportation in Little Rock as a lead driver. He has worked for the firm for 17 years.
He is survived by his wife and children.

“Friends, we lost a good one Friday and we are beyond devastated. Marley Mencer, Lead Driver with our dedicated fleet out of Little Rock, AR.
