A 29 year old temporary worker has died after falling into a vat of melted chocolate in a New Jersey processing plant. The terrifying and delicious death sounds like fudge frenzy nightmare.
The Cocoa Services Inc. plant worker fell after a blade used to mix raw chocolate hit him. The man’s name has not been released, but he might as well be Augustus Gloop (the fat kid from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).
The accident happened today as the worker was loading raw chocolate into the vat where it’s melted and mixed and then shipped elsewhere to be made into candy products. Prosecutor’s spokesman Jason Laughlin said a co-worker tried to shut off the machine and two others tried to pull the man out of the 8-foot deep vat. Cocoa Services hires a second company — Lyons and Sons — to do the mixing.
