Sweet Death



A man has died after falling into a vat of hot chocolate at a factory in the US state of New Jersey.

Vincent Smith Jr, 29, was emptying pieces of solid chocolate into the melting vat when he slipped from a platform into the 2.5m (8ft) deep unit.

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.

Mr Smith was a temporary worker at the Cocoa Services Inc plant in the city of Camden.

The chocolate is mixed at the plant by another company before being shipped.

  1. interesting but sad news.

  2. In a related story, US acting president Barack Hussein Obama has announced he is adding a clause in the Health Care bill that covers the health dangers of falling into a vat of hot molten chocolate and being struck in the head by a mixing paddle. Also new to the bill is a clause protecting US citizens from being struck in the face with uncooked noodles. Economic experts believe this will add approximately another $1.2 trillion USD to the cost of this legislation.
