WASHINGTON TWP. - The Procter & Gamble Paper Products plant employee who died after suffering injuries at the plant Saturday has been identified.
Jason C. Slavish, 36, of Luzerne, was transported to Tyler Memorial Hospital in Tunkhannock, where he died at 3 p.m. after the industrial accident at the Wyoming County plant on Saturday. "He died of traumatic head injury, which happened while he was working on a paper- making machine," Wyoming County Chief Coroner Thomas Kukuchka said.
Few additional details about the accident have been released as the investigation continues. The accident occurred when production was down during a regularly scheduled maintenance program, according to Alex Fried, spokesman for the plant.
My only hope is that the Employer studies this incident as much as possible and learns how it happened and implements procedures so it can't happen again.
