Railroad worker, Jeffrey Scholl, 38, was killed after bridge collapsed over Elkorn River in NE

Scholl was among three Nebraska Central Railroad workers checking on the railroad bridge in Norfolk last Tuesday when it collapsed, throwing them into the fast-moving current. Two of the workers were pulled out of the river alive. The body of 38-year-old railroad worker Jeff Scholl was found late Thursday or early Friday near the bridge that collapsed into the Elkhorn River.

Scholl worked for the Nebraska Central Railroad, which leased the bridge from the Union Pacific.

Seven members of the Lincoln Fire and Rescue specialized water rescue team left Friday to help the Norfolk Fire Department recover Scholl’s body.

Scholl is survived by his wife, Suzie, and two young sons.
