A Greenwood man was killed Saturday in an industrial accident at the Louis Rich plant in Newberry County, according to Newberry County Coroner Craig Newton.
Newton identified the man as Todd Hendrix, 46, of Greenwood. The cause of death is asphyxia due to mechanical entrapment, Newton said.
According to Newton, Hendrix was employed at the Louis Rich plant in Newberry. Hendrix had not been seen for about 30 minutes prior to the discovery of his body. He was discovered just after 4 a.m. Saturday morning.
Newton has ruled the death accidental, though he noted it is still under investigation by the Newberry County Coroner’s Office and Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
