HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - State inspectors have checked a northwestern Indiana factory where a worker was killed in an industrial accident.
Authorities say 61-year-old Steve Mangona of Kendallville suffered multiple crushing injuries that killed him Sunday at the Unilever soap factory in Hammond.
United Steelworkers officials say Mangona was an electrician who was crushed by a heavy metal cover he was lifting with a remote-controlled crane.
State labor department spokesman Marc Lotter said inspectors didn't immediately rule on a cause for the accident.
