MOTTVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - State officials are investigating the death of a 30-year-old Indiana man at a mill in southwest Michigan.
The St. Joseph sheriff's office tells WOOD-TV that the man apparently lost his footing Friday while loading rail cars and fell into a hopper car at the facility in Mottville Township, just north of the state line with Indiana.
Co-workers pulled the man out and started cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The Elkhart, Ind., resident later was pronounced dead.
The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the case.
