KENNER, La. (AP) - A worker at Pellerin Milnor Corporation in Kenner has been killed in an industrial accident.

Authorities say the man, who’s worked for the company for the past six years, apparently had not engaged the safety shut-off when he became trapped in the machine at about 12 p.m. Thursday.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police have not identified the victim, pending family notification.
