USA - Worker dies when furnace falls on him

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. - Northern Indiana police say a foundry worker died over the weekend when an industrial furnace fell on him as he was working on it.

Twenty-four-year-old worker died Saturday morning at the Manchester Metals foundry about 30 miles west of Fort Wayne.

He was working on the furnace's hydraulic system when it fell, pinning him. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to free the worker, who was later pronounced dead.

Another worker was also caught under the furnace, but workers were able to free him before firefighters arrived. That worker was slightly injured.
