OSAGE CITY, Kan. — Osage City officials say a 53-year-old Topeka man died in a work-related accident at a plastic plant.

Police chief Fred Nech says Ruben Guadlaupe Chavira died early Wednesday at the Orbis Plastic plant.

Nech says officers found Chavira pinned against other equipment by a forklift he had been operating.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2qJsAqT ) that Chavira, a press operator and backup grinder, was employed by the company since 2014.

Orbis, OSHA and the coroner’s office will investigate the death.
