MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office says a 58-year-old man was killed in an industrial accident at a tannery in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1z7GunC ) reports Juan Gonzalez died of blunt force head injury about 9:40 a.m. Sunday after an accident at D.R. Diedrich & Company.

According to records, Gonzalez had been working on a machine called a flesher, which is used to separate fat from the hide. A preliminary investigation showed a bolt came unfastened and caused a large cylinder to fall, pinning Gonzalez against the machine.
