ALTON, Ill. (AP) -- A ConAgra mill worker was killed in a fall at an Alton flour mill.
ConAgra spokeswoman Becky Niiya says 47-year-old Jay Van Buskirk of Edwardsville died Saturday afternoon at the ConAgra Foods plant. She says Van Buskirk fell when he was moving between floors while standing on a man-lift platform. The plant is nine stories tall. The cause of the fall wasn't immediately clear.
Niiya says Van Buskirk worked for ConAgra for less than a year. She says the company is investigating the accident and working with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
About 90 employees work at the Alton facility.
