A woman working at this facility in Pennsylvania died Monday in a “horrible meat grinder accident the county coroner said

Kiessling told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette that no one witnessed the accident and it's unclear if the woman was "reaching for something in the grinder, which was about 6 feet off the ground".

Kiessling Jr. confirmed to ABC News that 35-year-old Jill Greninger died after she fell into the piece of heavy machinery at the Economy Locker Storage Company, likely while she was standing on a set of wheeled stairs.

Upon discovering what happened, a co-worker contacted authorities, Kiessling told the outlet.

For two hours Raper's legs were trapped in the machine before he was freed, He died the next day from his injuries. Her body was found by a co-worker who heard odd noises coming from the commercial machine.

"We talked to the person who found her", Kiessling told ABC.

The Sun-Gazette reported that firefighters responded to the scene, though the employee was already dead when they arrived.

It took firefighters 45 minutes to dissemble the machine and extract the woman's body.

Economy Locker Storage specializes in "wholesale meat processing and distribution needs", according to the company's website.

Investigators from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration were on the scene Monday and are working to determine what exactly caused the woman's death.

Greninger's death is the first reported at the Economy Locker Storage Company.
