EAST FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Police say two pallets loaded with bottles of vodka sauce have fallen onto a worker at a New York packing plant, killing her.
Suffolk County homicide detectives are investigating the death of Yolanda Gonzalez at L&S Packing in East Farmingdale, about 25 miles east of New York City.
Police say the Lake Ronkonkoma (ron-KONK'-uh-muh) woman was labeling canned tomatoes Tuesday evening when the nearby pallets toppled over.
Co-workers tried to help the 39-year-old shipping manager by removing the debris, but she died at the scene.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified.
A Wednesday night telephone call to the packing facility hasn't been returned.
