Two people Fall into a Chocolate Tank, Requiring Rescue

On Thursday, The Mars Wrigley factory in Pennsylvania stopped its operation due to an incident involving two people who fell into a tank full of chocolate. Obviously, two people were rescued by the team of Lancaster County 911.

According to CNN, two people were transported to the local hospital. One of them was rescued by helicopter.

The extent of their injuries is unknown.

“Fire crews have eliminated pulling them straight out of a tank,” Brad Wolfe, communications supervisor for Lancaster County 911 dispatch, told CNN earlier on Thursday. “They have to cut a hole in the side of the tank to get them out,” he said.

Wolfe said that it’s unclear how the people fell into the chocolate tank. No injuries have been reported at this time, according to Wolfe.

A Mars Wrigley spokesperson told CNN: “We are actively managing the situation and our primary focus is supporting emergency teams on site.”

Chocolate factory incidents have happened from leaking chocolate from the factory to covering the street in Germany in 2018, and ‘Chocolate snow’ falls in the Swiss town after the Lindt Chocolate factory explosion in 2020 in recent history. Many chocolate factories are located in Pennsylvania including Hershey Chocolate factory.
