A woman working at a facility in Pennsylvania died Monday in a “horrible" meat grinder accident, the county coroner said.
The fatal incident took place around 11:30 a.m. at the Economy Locker Storage Company, WNEP reported. It involved a commercial meat grinder, Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.
“We don’t know if she fell in or was pulled in as she was perhaps reaching for something in the grinder, which was about 6 feet off the ground, he said.
Upon discovering what happened, a co-worker contacted authorities, Kiessling told the outlet. By the time they got to the scene, the unidentified woman was deceased, according to the Sun-Gazette, citing officials.
The fatality is reportedly under investigation.
