Man dies after falling into a tank full of chocolate

http://www.myfoxphilly.com/dpp/news/...Chocolate_Tank

Quote:
CAMDEN, N.J. - Police said a 29-year-old man died Wednesday morning after falling into a tank full of chocolate at a Camden business.

Slideshow: Man Dies In Chocolate Tank

Police were called to a warehouse and manufacturing facility on the 700 block of North 36th Street around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a man who had fallen into hot chocolate.

The Camden County prosecutor's office identified the victim as 29-year-old Vincent Smith II of Camden. He was a temporary worker at the Cocoa Services Inc. plant.

Prosecutor's spokesman Jason Laughlin says a co-worker tried to shut off the machine and two others tried to pull Smith out of the 8-foot-deep vat. He was hit and fatally

According to authorities, Smith was working at Lyons and Sons, which leases space to Cocoa Services. That company takes raw chocolate and melts it down to send out to other companies who use chocolate.

Police said Smith was standing over the vat of chocolate and was dumping the chunks of chocolate in when he fell in. At least three people turned the emergency shut off, but it was too late because one of the paddles had apparently knocked Smith out. The chocolate was 120 degrees.

Smith had been in the melting pot for about 10 minutes by the time crews arrived. He was declared dead shortly after 11 a.m.

The turnout gear of firefighters at the scene was covered with chocolate, as were the clothes of an obviously distraught co-worker who was being consoled by an EMT.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been called in to investigate, Fox 29's Robin Taylor reported from the scene.

I'd imagine this is how Homer Simpson would want to go out.

If he wasn't a racist he would not have died.

I always wanted to bath in Nutella. Maybe it's dangerous, but it's worth the risk.

Sound like that movie I saw years ago called Consuming Passions.

I just read that the police are now saying that that this man was seen in the vicinity of the 700 block of North 36th Street just minutes after the accident.

Re: Man dies after falling into a tank full of chocolate

Reminds me of the first-ever Smothers Brothers routine I heard as a kid:

Tom (singing): I fell into a vat of chocolate. I fell into a vat of chocolate...

Dick (singing): What’d you do when you fell in the chocolate?

Both: La dee doo dum la dee doo dum day...

Tom (singing): I yelled ‘fire’ when I fell into the chocolate...

Dick (annoyed, singing): Why’d you yell ‘fire’ when you fell into the chocolate?

Tom: I yelled ‘fire’ cause no one would help me if I yelled ‘Chocolate!’

Both: La dee doo dum la dee doo dum day.

Re: Man dies after falling into a tank full of chocolate

My uncle died in a similar fashion. He fell into a tank of beer at a brewery. It took a while though, he got out twice to take a piss.

Re: Man dies after falling into a tank full of chocolate

So they can still use the rest of the chocolate in the tank, right? Or is it at a discounted price?

So he had time to go out for an ironic lunch?

How is it that we haven't broken out into a chain Oompa Loompa song?

Re: Man dies after falling into a tank full of chocolate

Turns out to be an illegal chocolate producing plant.

"Lyons and Sons was only licensed to store cocoa beans at their Camden facility. They failed to renew a "certificate of occupancy" with the city back in 1996 and should not be operating any type of business, said Iraida Afanador, director of Code Enforcement. The city issued a summons to the company."

Sounds like a Six Feet Under death.
