A man in his 50s has been killed in a workplace accident at the Twin Rivers sawmill in Plaster Rock.
The RCMP and WorkSafeNB confirmed the man's death and an investigation on Thursday.
"The accident claimed the life of a man in his 50s," said Beverly Stears, the acting WorkSafeNB director, in an email.
RCMP Const. Jullie Rogers-Marsh said officers went to the mill and determined there was no foul play. The police have left the investigation to WorkSafeNB.
In a release on Thursday, WorkSafeNB said the man was a heavy equipment operator who died after he was crushed in a workplace accident on Wednesday.
The agency says it is conducting an investigation to determine how the fatality occurred, how it may have been prevented and whether there were any violations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act or its regulations.
