RUSSIA – A mother of two died while working at a confectionery plant after she fell into a vat of molten chocolate and was “minced” by the in the metal machinery.

According to reports, 24-year-old Svetlana Roslina was either pouring ingredients into the vat of molten chocolate when she fell in, or was trying to retrieve a dropped cell phone.

Either way, Roslina ended up falling inside the vat and was unable to get out. The poor woman ended up caught in the machinery inside the vat that keeps the chocolate agitated. The result was a very violent death.

“She was minced, only her legs were left,” said one local source at the Sergiev-Posad confectionery plant.

Police are currently investigating the accident.

Roslina isn’t the only person we’ve reported on who died after falling into a vat of chocolate. Back in 2009, Vincent Smith II died after he fell into a vat of chocolate and was pinned down by a giant paddle-like agitator.

So now we will add a second “drowned in chocolate” on our list of horrible ways people have died at work.…

Boy, 12, Dies After Being Buried In Snow Bank

December 14, 2016 at 7:35 am by  

GREENWICH, NY – A 12-year-old boy has died after he and a friend were buried in a snow bank while building a fort in the snow.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon as the boy played in the snow on a dead end street where a public works truck plowed snow in the area.

When the boys failed to return home, 911 was called and police arrived on the scene. A K-9 would find a sled near the mound of snow, prompting search crews to start digging.

“There was probably a dozen-and-a-half men with shovels and bare hand digging, and I think they moved – with no exaggeration – seven tons of hard packed snow in about 10 minutes time,” said Greenwich-Cambridge Police Chief George Bell.

One boy was found unresponsive and rushed to Saratoga Hospital where he would be pronounced dead. The second boy was found an hour later and, surprisingly, was alert and responsive. He was taken to the hospital and is talking.

At this time it is not known if the snow fort the children were building collapsed on top of them, or if they were buried by the snow plow (or both).…

LYNN, AR – It’s been awhile since we have reported on an incident like this, but an 8-year-old boy in Arkansas died after a tombstone fell on top of him.

According to Detective Jaime White of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened on Saturday as the boy was attending a birthday party at Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church.

The boy was climbing on a headstone shaped like a tree stump, dated 1906, when it came loose and fell on top of the boy. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Jeff Nely, the church’s pastor, called the boy a “rambunctious young man” who was “full of life” and says church members are planning to help the family financially in some way.

“Just trying to love them and let them know that we support them and trying to comfort them and give peace as best we can,” said Neely.

This is the fourth tombstone related death we have reported on that I remember.

In 2012, a 4-year-old boy in Utah died after a headstone fell on top of him while he played in a graveyard, and a 4-year-old girl in North Carolina died the same way.…

ibanez-and-scyleeNEW YORK, NY – Two baby sisters were scalded to death after a radiator busted inside the room where they were napping.

The tragic incident happened on Wednesday after the sisters, Ibanez, 2, and Scylee, 1, were put down for a nap by their father inside a New York homeless shelter.

When their mother returned home an hour later, she went in to check on the girls and made a horrifying discovery. It seems as if a valve on the radiator busted, filling the room with scalding hot steam, causing horrific burns to the girls’ faces and chests.

Witnesses say the girls’ parents, Danielle and Peter Ambrose, ran screaming into the street carrying their children. The girls were rushed to the hospital suffering burns to 70 percent of their bodies, but were unable to be saved.

I’ve been reading a handful of sites reporting on the parents’ history of drug addiction, homelessness and history with child welfare. While the articles themselves don’t blame the parents for their daughters’ horrific death, this info hasn’t stopped the people commenting on the articles from doing so.…

thanksgivingANTIOCH, CA – Three people have died and five others fell ill after eating a Thanksgiving dinner at the American Legion Hall in Antioch.

Around 385 people ate at the dinner Thursday, a dinner normally for senior citizens, homeless and others who would be alone for Thanksgiving.

Afterwards, eight members of the same family were admitted into the hospital the following two days displaying signs of a food-borne illness.

Three of the patients have since died, four were treated and released and one is still in the hospital, officials said.

To be clear, there is currently no proof that the Thanksgiving meal is connected to the food-borne illness. The victims all being the members of the same family, along with the number of people who ate the meal and did not get sick, certainly raises questions.

However, Veteran Esidor Alviar ate at the dinner and said he became sick later that night.

“It was a nice dinner, turkey, stuffing, cranberries and coffee,” Alviar said. “About one o’clock in the morning, I had cramps and a terrible stomachache.…

johnthony-walkerCHATTANOOGA, TN – Police have arrested the driver of a school bus that flipped over, slammed into a tree and killed five children.

On Monday afternoon, 24-year-old Johnthony Walker was transporting 37 students from Woodmore Elementary School when he lost control of the bus. The buss flipped on to its side and crashed into a tree, splitting it apart.

Five children died at the scene, six were critically injured, six were admitted to the hospital and 20 were treated and released by local hospitals.

What caused the accident is still being investigated, one of the children on the bus said they were going “real fast” before the accident occurred.

“He was going real fast and he hit a garbage bag,” the boy said. “And we then hit a mailbox, then we flipped over and hit a tree real hard.”

Police Chief Fred Fletcher said speed is being investigated ‘very, very strongly’ and that a warrant has been issued to remove the informational box on the school bus and review the video to help determined what happened.…

plastic-recyclingINDIANAPOLIS, IN – A worker inside an Indiana recycling plant met a grisly fate after a machine that compresses and melts plastics turned on while he was inside the machine working on it.

According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, 31-year-old Michael Burris was working inside a machine at the Plastic Recycling Inc. early Thursday morning.

Burris was trying to unclog the machine, which grinds plastic bottles and other waste into pellets, when it turned back on with him inside it.

When medics and police arrived at the facility, Burris was found lying face down on the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene from blunt force injuries to his head, body and extremities.

His death has been ruled an accident. The facility has been in operation since 1988 and has no history of safety inspections, violations or safety orders.

RIP, Burris. One can only hope your death was a quick one.

We will now add “ground into pellets by a recycling machine” to our long list of workplace deaths that include drowning in vat of molasses, suffocating inside a cryochamber, being cooked inside an industrial tuna steamer, drowning in cow shitpinto beans or chocolate, being chewed up inside meat grinders, getting stuck inside industrial dryers, flattened by paper rolling machines, and dying from exploding beer kegs, and multiple instances of being pulled into a wood chipper.

jordin-taylorBURLESON, TX – The body of 20-year-old Jordin Taylor was found wedged beneath a shuttle bus 14 hours after she was struck and killed late Friday night.

Taylor, a freshman at Texas State University and a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, was at a fraternity party at the Cool River Ranch concert venue Friday night.

At around 11:15 p.m., one of the shuttle bus drivers transporting students back home reported the bus had lost its air brakes. The driver was informed by a supervisor to leave the bus where it was and transfer the students to another bus.

The next morning, a mechanic sent to work on the bus found the problem was Taylor’s body being wedged under the vehicle’s rear axle. After receiving the results of Taylor’s autopsy, the Sheriff’s Department says they believe Taylor was hit by the bus and dragged over 500 feet.

Although deputies say the crash appears to be a tragic accident, they are asking anyone with information on the incident, or anyone who attended the event with Taylor, to call 830-379-1224.…

Someone at the party called 911 immediately after the shooting and Flower’s daughter was rushed to the hospital. She has underwent surgery and was last reported in stable condition.

Sheriff David Carpenter fired Flowers, has worked for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office since August 2015, stating officers are responsible for their weapons at home and that failure to do so could result in criminal charges.

thunder-river-rapidsGOLD COAST, AU – Police have confirmed four people were killed at a Dreamworld theme park in Australia after a water ride malfunctioned.

The accident happened on Tuesday as riders were on the Thunder River Rapids water ride — a ride in which patrons are sent around a course while sitting in rafts that look like six chairs on a giant inner tube.

At the end of the course, the rafts are lifted out of the water on an incline by a conveyor belt. That’s when one of the rafts up-ended and threw two men, aged 35 and 38, and two women, aged 42 and 32, out of the raft.

Initial reports say two of the victims were crushed by another raft that came up behind the one that had tipped over, while the other two were killed after falling into the ride’s machinery. Early reports say the victims were all from the same family.

The Thunder River Rapids ride has been in operation since 1986 and considered one of the tamest rides in the park (you can see just how tame in this video).…

barstoolBIRMINGHAM, AL — A fifth-grader in suffered an embarrassing injury in her school’s cafeteria after she went to sit down on a barstool and did not realize there was no seat attached to the pole.

According to Stacy Minnifield, she was called to her 10-year-old daughter’s school by the school nurse who informed her that her daughter had been impaled by a metal pole in the lunchroom.

“She let me know that they got into the lunchroom, she got a tray, she got ready to sit down and didn’t notice that it didn’t have a barstool there,” Minnifield said. “She plopped down, immediately felt the pole, and that’s when she started to hurt.”

Minnifield went to the school and took her daughter to the hospital after finding the pole had torn through her pants and impaled her rectum.

“We discovered it was both rectal and towards that front area/private area,” Minnifield said.

Minnifield said her daughter is expected to make a full recovery, but the physical injuries isn’t the only thing she will have to recover from.…

leonardo-sanchezWEST JORDAN, UT – Here’s some nightmare fuel for any of you with children in daycare. A 1-year-old boy suffocated under a bean bag chair as a daycare worker sat on it and read a story to other children.

On Sept 8, Leonardo Sanchez was at the West Jordan Child Center when he crawled under a bean bag chair to hide. A female daycare worker, unaware Leonardo was under the chair, sat in it and began reading a story to the other children.

Surveillance camera footage shows it was 15 minutes before it was realized Leonardo was missing and was located under the bean bag chair. Attempts were made to resuscitate the boy at the daycare, but he would be pronounced dead after being transported to the hospital.

His parents are understandably upset and want to know how something like this could have happened to their son, who would have celebrated his second birthday this Saturday. A day that will now be the boy’s funeral.

“I’m just confused on how you don’t know where my kid is.…

Jim PetersenDRAPER, UT — Authorities say 57-year-old Jim Peterson died after the paramotorist crashed through the roof of an LDS church in Draper.

The accident happened Sunday morning during services for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 272 E. Traverse Point.

Steven Howlett said he and Peterson took off together from the Point of the Mountain and were flying alongside each other as they have for the last three years.

Peterson had more gas than Howlett, so when Howlett decided to land, Peterson kept going.

It’s not clear what malfunctioned with Peterson’s paramotor, but shortly after the two separated Peterson was seen spinning rapidly in a free-fall.

“We have heard reports that there might have been a collapse of the chute,” said Sergeant Chad Carpenter with Draper Police. “We don’t have that confirmed yet though.”

Peterson ended up crashing through the roof of the LDS church while dozens of people were inside. No one inside the church was hurt, but there was nothing that could be done for Peterson.…

Debra HarbeckALBUQUERQUE, NM – The family of 56-year-old Debra Harbeck are suing a nightclub after Harbeck choked and died during a corn dog eating contest at the establishment.

The incident happened back in January when Debra Harbeck was out celebrating her daughter’s 22nd birthday.

While they were drinking at the Fire and Ice nightclub, Harbeck entered into a corn dog eating contest where contestants got on their knees in front of men who were holding corn dogs near their groin area.

The person who ate the corn dog the fastest would win a prize to go along with whatever dignity they had left. Unfortunately for Harbeck, the eager beaver she bit off a bit more than she could chew.

According to the complaint, Harbeck began choking on the corn dog, leading to patrons applying the Heimlich maneuver and CPR before paramedics arrived. The lack of oxygen to her brain caused irreparable brain damage and she would die at the hospital the next day.

Now her daughter, father and her grandmother are suing the club along with anyone connected to the property and its liquor license. …

swimming poolPUEBLO, CO – Two sisters — ages 3 and 5 — and their 17-year-old female baby sitter drowned in a mobile home park swimming pool Monday afternoon.

Police responded to the Pueblo Grande Village mobile home park shortly after 2 p.m. yesterday after receiving a call about a drowning.

“Upon arrival, officers located three individuals who appeared to have drown in a swimming pool,” police said in a news release.

Despite attempting CPR on 3-year-old Azucena Gandarilla; her 6-year-old sister Amaya Gandarilla; and their 17-year-old baby sitter, Joo Lee, all three would later be pronounced dead by the Pueblo County Coroner’s Office.

Residents say the pool is normally packed with kids in the summertime and ranges from 2 to 8 feet deep. There are also signs posted that warn people to swim at their own risk as there are no lifeguards at the pool.

According to Capt. Joe Garcia of the Pueblo Police Department, an investigation into the drownings is ongoing but no foul play is suspected.

“I think it’s just a horrible tragedy,” Garcia said.…

Caleb Thomas SchwabKANSAS CITY, KS – Caleb Thomas Schwab, son of Republican member of the Kansas House of Representatives Scott Schwab, was killed Sunday at the Schlitterbahn Water Park while on the park’s 168-foot water slide.

For those of you unaware of the Verruckt water slide,  riders sit in a three-person raft and are secured with a velcro-type seat belt across the waist and shoulders. The combined weight of riders per raft must be between 400 and 550 pounds

The raft then goes down a 168 foot drop before going back and then down a 50 foot drop. Here’s a first-person video of the ride for those interested.

An official cause of the accident and Caleb’s injuries have not been released, but witnesses say the 10-year-old flew into the air after the first steep drop, causing him to hit safety netting located on the sides of the slide.

Hitting the net caused Caleb to suffer some kind of traumatic injury, as video from a news helicopter showed a significant amount of blood had pooled at the bottom the the slide.…

Robert HerweyerSAUGATUCK, MI – Authorities say a medical episode or fumes may have contributed to the death of 23-year-old Robert Herweyer who drowned in a vat of molasses last week.

On July 26, Herweyer and a co-worker were pumping molasses out of a 12-foot plastic vat at the Agri-Science Technology Company.

When the molasses got to about two feet deep, Herweyer put on a safety mask and used straps attached to a forklift to climb down into the tank to adjust a valve.

According to the co-worker, when Herweyer grabbed the straps to climb back out, he didn’t move and would not respond to him asking if he was ok.

When the co-worker found he was unable to life Herweyer out of the tank with the straps, he ran to their boss’ office for help.

Their boss, David Alexander, used an electric saw to cut the tank open and pull Herweyer out of the vat and start performing CPR. But it was too late.

Reports say that Herweyer was on his back in the tank and his safety mask was barely visible.…
