Woman killed after falling into meat grinder at work

A woman was killed Monday morning after she fell inside a commercial meat grinder at a Pennsylvania plant.

According to reports, Jill Greninger (above, insert) was working her shift at Economy Locker Storage Company in Lycoming County when she fell into the machinery at around 11:30 a.m. local time.

The woman, an employee at the Economy Locker Storage Company in northern Pennsylvania, was found dead on Monday morning by a coworker who said they responded after hearing odd noises coming from the commercial machine, authorities said Tuesday.

Kiessling Jr said the woman had been standing on a set of stairs that was on wheels when she fell.

Another employee at the plant reportedly found the victim.

"We talked to the person who found her", Kiessling told ABC News.

Upon discovering what happened, a co-worker contacted authorities, Kiessling told the outlet.

Kiessling did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for confirmation.

Emergency responders were called and spent 45 minutes extracting her body.

The incident took place at the Economy Locker Storage Company in Muncy, Penn.

Greninger's death is the first reported at the Economy Locker Storage Company.

"My heart goes out to everyone who is affected by this", a neighbor of the victim told WNEP.

The Occupation Health and Safety Administration opened an investigation into her death.
