DELTA — A 64-year-old man was killed Friday in an industrial accident.

Melquiadez Marquez of Hinckley was operating a machine that cuts large bales of hay into smaller bales about 9 a.m. in the McCornick area between Holden and Delta, when he somehow became caught in the machine and was crushed, according to a statement from the Millard County Sheriff's Office.

"It appears no one witnessed the accident. A coworker heard Marquez cry out and found him in the machine," the sheriff's office stated.

The investigation regarding how Marquez became caught in the machine was continuing.
