It is reported that at about 12:10 pm, Walker was helping to direct the driver of a Leyland motor truck, containing silt, to dump the silt into a hole, when the truck overturned spilling the silt on Walker, covering him.

The fire department was summoned. The fire brigade used a crane to remove Walker.

He was removed and taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
