Industrial worker dies after falling into an extractor

A worker from Randleman was killed following an industrial accident that happened at the Deep River Dyeing plant in Randleman on Friday, December 13.

Randleman police identified the man as Martin Soto Rodriguez, 61, a worker at the Deep River Dyeing plant since March 2010. The police stated that before 2:00 p.m., Rodriguez fell into a spinning extractor as he was trying to load the equipment. Authorities believe Rodriguez might had been entwined with fabric or tripped, causing the fatal fall.

Our legal team at Joe Miller Law, understands that losing a loved one in a tragic workplace incident such as this is deeply heartbreaking. We extend our deepest condolences to Martin’s families, friends, and colleagues.
