A Fall River man was killed on December 16th when his arm became entangled in a grinding machine while working at Tribe Mediterranean Foods Plant in Taunton, Massachusetts. The worker, age 28, was reportedly cleaning a grinding machine when his arm became caught in the machinery and he was pronounced dead at the scene. At this time, it is still not known what caused his arm to become caught, but the Bristol County District Attorney's office says the death does not appear to be suspicious.
