Worker dies at plastics plant


A worker has died in an industrial accident at a plastics plant in the area.

WOOD TV reported that the man was cleaning an injection molding machine Friday afternoon at Grand Rapids Plastics 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 produces plastic injection molding products for several industries, including automotive, construction and electronics.
