Cleaning crew worker injured in meat grinder accident
Mangino's partner was not working Monday, so he was finally discovered at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. Three fire departments combined to have him freed by 7:17. The extent of his injuries was not immediately known.
"It was just an accident," said Leetsdale police Chief James Santucci said.
He added that the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration was notified, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture was on site. The OSHA Pittsburgh area director told the Gazette that there are no rules on the minimum number of employees that a company must have on hand during cleaning of machinery.
