Chocolate traps worker

JS Online:A heap of truffles: Chocolate traps worker
“I was pushing the chocolate down into the vat because it was stuck,” said Garcia, 21. “It came loose, and I just slid down the hopper into the chocolate.”
Garcia, who has worked at the company for almost two years, said he was almost chest deep in the chocolate, the dark variety. “It was in my hair, in my ears, my mouth, everywhere,” Garcia said. “I felt like I weighed 900 pounds. I couldn’t move.”

Garcia said his colleagues added cocoa butter to the vat in an attempt to thin the chocolate. Sinnen said firefighters in the ladder company that responded to the accident helped scoop the chocolate out of the vat. Eventually, enough chocolate was removed that Garcia was able to take off his pants and be pulled out. (Click on the picture to enlarge.)
