Man Cooked To Death At Tuna Plant

Authorities say a 62-year-old employee was cooked to death at a Southern California seafood plant for tuna maker Bumble Bee Foods.
The Whittier Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/TmJFyv) Jose Melena was found shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday at the plant in Santa Fe Springs.
Erika Monterroza is a spokeswoman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health. She says it's unclear how the man ended up inside a cooking device called a "steamer machine."
The state agency has launched an investigation.
Bumble Bee Foods spokesman Pat Menke expressed condolences to Melena's family in a written statement. Menke says operations at the canning facility will be suspended until Monday.

Poor guy. At least they found him before he ended up in someone's tuna casserole.

I don't understand how one could accidentally get sealed into one of those things. I bet foul play was involved.
