A woman was killed Monday morning after she fell inside a commercial meat grinder at a Pennsylvania plant.

The co-worker went to check on Greninger and found her body in the machine, according to Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr.

"This was a terrible accident", Lycoming County Coroner Charles E Kiessling Jr told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.

The Lycoming County coroner's office says 35-year-old Jill Greninger apparently fell around 11:30 a.m. Monday.

It took firefighters more than two hours to disassemble the meat grinder and recover Ms Greninger's remains, Mr Kiessling said.

Another employee at the plant reportedly found the victim, whose name is not being released until family members have been notified.

"We talked to the person who found her", Kiessling told ABC News.

Mr Kiessling said no other employees were present at the time.

Company officials have not responded to media requests for comment.

Jill was described by friends as "an fantastic person" who "touched so many lives".

The Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration told the network that it has begun investigating the woman's death.

Economy Locker Storage has been in business in 1905, and specializes in "wholesale meat processing and distribution needs", according to the company's website.

Greninger's death is the first reported at the Economy Locker Storage Company.
