BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a Burlington man injured earlier this week in an industrial accident at a snack food packaging plant has died.

Patrick Tisor, 36, was hurt Monday afternoon, Dec.  5, at Shearer’s Foods, the Hawk Eye reports. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration in Des Moines confirmed that Tisor died Thursday night from his injuries. OSHA is investigating the fatal workplace accident. The company says it’s cooperating with the investigation.

Tisor’s father, Steven Tisor of Mediapolis, says he was told it appeared his son’s clothing became caught in a piece of equipment.

Burlington Fire Marshal Mark Crooks said Tuesday that rescue crews were called for a person who was caught in a roller system at the plant.

Patrick Tisor is survived by his wife and four children.
