According to police, a woman died after becoming stuck while trying to clean a bread machine at a company in North Carolina.

Virginia López Severiano, 44, died Tuesday morning after being sucked into a section of a factory mixing machine at the Azteca Market in Selma. At the time, the machine was turned on, according to Newsweek.

According to Selma Fire Chief Phillip McDaniel, Severiano was seriously injured when she was discovered. After about an hour and a half of “tedious rescue,” he said, emergency crews were able to free her from the machine.

Severiano was then airlifted to Duke University Hospital for surgery to save her arm, but succumbed to her injuries Tuesday evening, a family friend told WRAL.

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (USBLS), there will be 4,764 fatal workplace injuries in the United States in 2020, a 10% increase over the previous year.

The workplace death is being investigated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
