Two people working in a Mars factory fall into a giant vat of chocolate: firefighters had to dive to save them

No, this is not a scene straight out of Charlie and the chocolate factory or some Adventures of Rabbi Jacob… The accident is very real and occurred Thursday afternoon in the factory of the agri-food juggernaut in Pennsylvania, in the northeastern United States.

According to news channels FoxNews and CNNtwo people were rescued and hospitalized after falling into one of the company’s giant vats, which was full of chocolate.

No further details were provided as to why these employees found themselves in such a bad position, unable to hoist themselves out of the vat filled with cocoa.

According to the emergency services quoted by FoxNewsthe firefighters had to cut an opening in the structure of the tank to get them out as quickly as possible.

No details were given to local media on the precise condition of the two employees.

The Mars family group, whose best-known brands are Mars chocolates and confectionery, Wrigley (chewing-gum), Milky Way, Snickers, M&M’s as well as Uncle Ben’s rice or Royal Canin dog food, presents itself as the world leader in chocolate and chewing gum with an annual turnover of more than 30 billion dollars and some 100,000 employees.
