A 35-year-old woman died Tuesday when she fell into an industrial-size meat grinder at a food processing plant in Northern Pennsylvania.

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,” said Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling.

A fellow employee discovered Greninger had fallen into the machine, Kiessling said. The employee was prompted to check on the grinder after hearing strange noises coming from it.

First responders worked more than two hours to disassemble the meat grinder and recover Greninger’s remains, Kiessling said.
