YORK, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a 3,200-pound commercial air conditioner has fallen off a truck, crushing a worker at a Pennsylvania plant.

Jennifer Wright was helping load the unit onto a trailer at a Johnson Controls plant in Spring Garden Township when it fell off a pallet and landed on her Wednesday night.

The 37-year-old West York woman was freed from underneath the equipment and taken to a hospital, where she died.

York County Coroner Pam Gay classified Wright’s death as work-related. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

Wright was a temporary employee of the Wisconsin-based company.

The vice president of global communications for Johnson Controls says the company is deeply saddened by Wright’s death.
