Horrifying meat grinder accident kills woman in Pa
An employee at a Pennsylvania food processing plant was killed on the job Tuesday after falling into an industrial-size meat grinder machine.
Jill Greninger, 35, was reportedly standing on stairs next to the grinder when she "tragically either fell or was drawn into the machine resulting in her death," according to a statement by Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling.
The incident occurred at Economy Locker Storage Co., Inc. in Pennsdale.
A co-worker reportedly discovered what had happened after hearing strange noises coming from the machine.
First responders worked more than two hours to disassemble the meat grinder and recover Greninger's remains, Kiessling said.
OSHA is investigating the incident.
