Fish factory worker 'trapped in machinery' and dies

AN investigation is under way after a fish factory worker was killed in an accident.

The 21-year-old was pronounced dead at Sean Ward Fish Exports Ltd in Killybegs just after 3.40pm today.

It's understood he was fatally injured when he became trapped in machinery on the site.

Local TD Thomas Pringle who lives in the Co Donegal fishing village said the community was "stunned" by the tragedy.

Gardai say the Health and Safety Authority has been informed of the incident and officers were due to arrive at the factory last night.
