LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — A 28-year-old Burnsville man has died after a workplace accident at a manufacturing plant in Lakeville.

Police say Mitchell Robert Hauschildt was injured about 7:45 a.m. Sunday when he came into contact with a packing machine at the facility owned by Genpak, a food service packaging company. He was airlifted to a hospital, where he later died.

The Hennepin County medical examiner's office determined Hauschildt died of multiple blunt force injuries caused by an industrial roller. His death was ruled an accident.

Genpak says it's cooperating with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
