A worker at a Pennsylvania processing plant is dead after falling into a meat grinder Monday, according to WNEP.

"This was a horrible accident," Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.

It happened at Economy Locker Storage Company in Muncy Township. The coroner says the 35-year-old female fell into the machinery around 11:30 a.m.

It's not clear yet what may have caused her to fall, but Kiessling told the paper that she was standing on a stair set with wheels and "was perhaps reaching for something in the grinder, which was about 6 feet off the ground."

Another employee at the plant reportedly found the victim, whose name is not being released until family members have been notified.

A woman was killed Tuesday after falling into a meat grinder at her job at a food processing plant in Pennsylvania, the local coroner said.

Jill Greninger, 35, was standing on stairs next to an industrial-size meat grinder while working at Economy Locker Storage Co., Inc. in Pennsdale when she "tragically either fell or was drawn into the machine resulting in her death," Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling said in a statement.

I didn't see this posted yet, but I apologize if I somehow missed it. I know the guy who found her. He won't talk about it publicly, but he told me that he is really struggling with it. I told him that I hope the company offers free counseling to him, anyone else who witnessed the accident or its aftermath, and even employees who didn't witness it. Apparently she was very well-liked and knowing that a nice coworker has died in such a way would, I think, be very traumatic for them. Even without witnessing a damn thing, I know I'd have terrible imaginings of my colleague burned into my brain and it would take a long time to dislodge them.

I feel bad for your acquaintance. It's going to take a long time for that image to fade, if it ever does. My thoughts go out to him.
