Accident at Michigan Plastics Plant Claims Life of Worker

WYOMING, Mich. (AP) -- A worker has died in an industrial accident at a western Michigan plastics plant.
WOOD-TV reports the man was cleaning an injection molding machine Friday afternoon at Grand Rapids Plastics Inc. in Wyoming when he got caught inside and was killed.
The company on Saturday identified the victim as 34-year-old Russel Scharenbroch. Officials released a statement asking "the community to pray with us" for Scharenbroch's wife, Angel, and their family, as well as "employees who are suffering."
The company declined to release additional details about the accident.
A Wyoming police dispatcher on Saturday morning said officials had no information to release.
The company says on its website that it produces plastic injection molding products for several industries, including automotive, construction and electronics.
