UNDATED (WHTC) -- An industrial accident in Zeeland took the life of a 49-year-old Grand Rapids man early Saturday morning.  The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to the Hillshire Farms plant on 96th Ave. in Zeeland just before 2 A.M.  Sgt. Christie Wendt reports that deputies were dispatched to the plant  after a call saying that the man was stuck in a conveyor belt.  The victim was freed by Olive Township Fire Rescue.  They tried resuscitating the victim but he was pronounced dead at the scene.  The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of the family.  The Sheriff’s Office and Hillshire Farms are conducting investigations into the incident.
