Worker dies in recycling machine 20 feet up

Posted: November 03, 2012

A man working at a Camden glass recycling plant was killed overnight after becoming ensnared 20-feet up in running machinery, authorities said.

Jason Laughlin, spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, confirmed the death, but had no further details.

The industrial accident took place in a cullet glass recycling facility on the 2000 block of Mount Ephraim Ave. Glass is crushed and melted into what's known as cullet for reuse.

The lower half of the man's body was reportedly stuck in the machine as it ran.
