The witnesses said they went back to their work but after few minutes they saw smoke coming from one of the conveyors and went to inspect.

Upon inspection they found legs sticking out from the conveyor and so they turned off the machines and pulled him out.

Mr. Shinji was already dead and the police were called.

The case is still under investigation said Keiden Kintol, PIO and Special Adviser to Minister of Justice. [/reestrict]
