    Man Dies In Vat Of Chocolate
    Officials Believe Death Was Industrial Accident
    Posted: 7:41 a.m. EDT July 24, 2002

    HATFIELD, Pa -- A 19-year-old candy factory worker died after being submerged in a 1,200-gallon vat of liquefied chocolate for an undetermined amount of time.

    Yoni Cordon of Philadelphia was discovered in the vat by co-workers at the Kargher Corporation in Hatfield, Pa., around 4 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said.

    Police say they believe Cordon had been working on a platform near the opening of the vat, which is used for mixing and melting chocolate.

    Nobody saw Cordon fall and it was unknown how long he was submerged in the chocolate before he was found.

    The Montgomery County Coroner's Office pronounced Cordon dead at the scene shortly after his body was found. The cause of death has not been determined, but an autopsy was scheduled.

    Hanrahan says foul play was not suspected and the death was being investigated as an occupational accident.
