According to the Phildelphia Inquier, a A 50-year-old worker died after he fell into a sugar hopper Monday afternoon at an industrial plant in Bucks County, PA. Janio Salinas Valerda, of Edgewater, N.J., was pronounced dead at the CSC Sugar plant in Falls Township, PA.
The sugar hopper was not functioning correctly, and Valerda apparently was trying to unclog it with a large pole from a catwalk when he fell in. OHSA is investigating. Everyone needs to step up efforts to insure that needless deaths like this be prevented. There are far too many workers injured and killed in industiral settings.
