Blog: (Near) death by chocolate

Catherine Sleep | 22 August 2006

A factory employee has survived a brush with death by chocolate. Darmin Garcia, a worker at Wisconsin’s Debelis Corp., fell into a hopper of 110-degree chocolate in the course of his work, and the combined efforts of colleagues, police and firefighters could not get him back out.

What do you do when you have a disaster in the kitchen? You change the recipe, of course, and that’s what saved the day for Garcia. The chocolate was thinned out with cocoa butter and after two hours he was freed.

At least he could go home and say he’d been totally immersed in his work, I guess.

Course, if it had been a woman, she'd have been happy to stay there... bla bla (just thought I'd beat you to it)
