Man Is Trapped in Chocolate for 2 Hours
Forbes ^ | 08.18.2006

Posted on 08/18/2006 8:26:12 AM PDT by BykrBayb

A 21-year-old man was trapped in a tank of chocolate for about two hours early Friday, police said.

Capt. Randy Berner said the worker said he got into the tank at the Debelis Corp. to unplug it and became trapped waist deep in the chocolate.

"It was pretty thick. It was virtually like quicksand," Berner said, and co-workers, police and firefighters were not able to get him out until the chocolate could be thinned out.

"It's the first time I've ever heard of anything like this," the police captain said.

The worker said his ankles were sore after the incident, and he was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Berner said.

I'm reminded of the old story about the Irishman who drowned in a vat of whiskey. He had to fight off 20 rescuers before he finally died....

Actually, it was a vat of Guinnes, and the poor fellow had to climb out three times to use the bathroom before he finally drowned.

He climbed into a tank to unclog it?. Apparently he was unsuccessful. But what I he had been? It would have been made into what, "Special" Dark? The health dept better be all over this company for contamination.

The worker said his ankles were sore after the incident, and he was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Berner said.

Chocolate is known to cause swollen ankles.
