Farmer's market raises money for window washers' families

Sunday, July 11, 2010

Merchants at the Orinda Farmer's Market are raising money to help the families of two window washers whose cherry picker touched a power line last month.

The accident killed 51-year-old Jose Herrera and badly burned 30-year-old Eduardo Guerra who remains hospitalized.

The men were working near the farmer's market on June 5 when merchants heard an explosion and saw the lift catch fire with the men still inside.

The market's manager says they have raised $5,000 so far.
