Death by Chocolate (no, really): worker dies in hot cocoa mixing vat

A 29-year old worker died today when he fell into a giant vat of hot chocolate at a New Jersey factory. Hope someone at the scene had the presence of mind to question the oompah-loompahs.


A spokesman for the local prosecutor's office said the man appeared to have died instantly from a blow to his head by a paddle mixing the chocolate.
His colleagues at the factory tried to shut down the mixer, but were too late.
Local journalists met some of the workers in the car park, covered in chocolate and seemingly in dismay.
