Death By Chocolate

New Jersey - An employee working at a chocolate factory in Camden County died after falling into a vat of hot chocolate.



Vincent Smith II, aged 29, was on a nine-foot high platform dumping raw chocolate into the vat when he fell and suffered a fatal blow to the head from the vats agitator, a mechanism used to stir the chocolate.



The vat was churning a batch of chocolate for Hershey's at the time.



At the time of the incident, according to Camden County Prosecutors, there were three other workers on the platform. One worker managed to turn off the machine but it was too late.
