A man who was working at a tanning facility was killed in an accident.
The man was working between two large rotating drums that apply chemicals to animal hides. While working between the drums, a harness the man was wearing got caught and pulled into the machinery. This caused the man to be pulled underneath and then thrown over the drum.
The man suffered serious trauma, and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating the accident and will likely release a report in the future.
