Worker Dies at South Dakota Manufacturing Plant

A worker died at a manufacturing plant in the southeast South Dakota city of Canton when he became caught in a machine.

Officials at Adams Thermal Systems Inc. did not immediately identify the man who died Monday morning or go into detail about the incident. Company spokesman Bryan Plowman says the employee had worked for a year and a half at the plant that makes cooling systems for vehicle engines.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the death but directed further questions to the company.

Plowman says the company is investigating and has notified the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
