This has got to be one of the biggest fears of anyone who works inside a meat processing plant. A Pennsylvania woman named Jill Greninger was working at Economy Locker Storage Company when she somehow fell or was pulled into the meat grinder while on a staircase next to the machine.
She was actually operating the grinder from a rolling ladder about 6 feet above the machine, but there were no witnesses to determine what led to the fatal incident. Another employee discovered the woman inside the grinder after hearing the grinder make an unusual sound. It took emergency rescue over 45 minutes to pull the woman out of the grinder.
Greninger had worked for the plant since 2014 and lived in nearby Williamsport, Pennsylvania about 12 miles from the factory.
