Another day, another worker murdered by the meat industry.

A Eufaula man was killed Tuesday afternoon in an industrial accident at the chicken processing plant in Baker Hill, according to Barbour County Coroner Chip Chapman.

Carlos Lynn, 39, worked for the company contracted to clean equipment inside the Keystone Foods plant is owned by Tyson Foods. He died just before 5 p.m., when he was cleaning a piece of equipment called a chiller, Chapman said.

The cause of death was decapitation, Chapman said.

“He got caught in a pinch-point of the equipment,” the coroner said.

Lynn worked for PSSI, which cleaned plant equipment. 

Having your head ripped off while dealing with unsafe working conditions in a horrible industry and laboring for a subcontractor, yeah that sounds like the new Jungle to me.
