MINSTER — Members of the Minster Fire and Rescue squad responded to Minster Machine this morning for an accident which resulted in the death of an employee.

Minster Fire Chief Dale Dues told The Evening Leader crews received a phone call shortly after 5 a.m. today reporting a male at Minster Machine was trapped under a plate of steel. By the time emergency responders arrived, Dues said employees at the foundry freed the male. The male was brought to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital in St. Marys via a Minster squad.
