Default Man Trapped Waist Deep in Chocolate

This story made my mouth water What a waist of some perfectly good chocolate too!

Stroy link

It might sound like a chocoholic's dream, but stepping into a vat of bubbling chocolate became a two-hour nightmare for a 21-year-old man Friday morning.

Donovan Garcia, an employee of a company that supplies chocolate ingredients, said he was pushing the chocolate down into the vat at Debelis Corp. because it was stuck. But it became loose and he slid into the hopper.

"It was in my hair, in my ears, my mouth, everywhere," said Garcia, who has worked at the company for two years. "I felt like I weighed 900 pounds. I couldn't move."

The chocolate was 110 degrees, hotter than a hot tub, said Capt. Greg Sinnen of the Kenosha Fire Department.

Co-workers, police and firefighters tried to free the man but couldn't get him loose until the chocolate was thinned out with cocoa butter.

"It was pretty thick. It was virtually like quicksand," said police Capt. Randy Berner.

Garcia was treated for minor injuries at a nearby medical center and released.

I can't believe that you can even take a chocolate story and turn it into football! (lol)

Sounds like something that would happen to one of the naughty little kids in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I'm surprised it didn't happen near where I work/live. Hey if you want to bathe in chocolate you can do that at the Spa at Hotel Hershey believe it or not. That poor man will prolly never be able to look at a Hershey's Bar the same way again.
