A woman died Tuesday after falling into a meat grinder at workplace, a food processing plant in Pennsylvani.
Jill Greninger, 35, was standing on stairs alongside an industrial-size meat processor while working at Economy Locker Storage Co., Inc. in Pennsdale when she “tragically either fell or was drawn into the machine bringing about her demise,” Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling told in an announcement.
A fellow employee realized Greninger had fallen into the grinder after hearing strange noises coming from it, Kiessling told.
Responders worked more than two hours to disassemble the machine to get her body out. a spokesperson confirmed The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the incident.
Her friend Erin Schreffler wrote on Facebook “You will forever be missed by so many people. You’ve touched so many lives. RIP my friend.”
