SANDY, Utah – A bizarre accident inside a bakery has claimed the life of a woman.

Authorities say 45-year-old Carmen “Jackie” Lindhart was killed at the Reams Grocery Store early Wednesday morning.

The Sandy Police Department says Lindhart was in the bakery department when she “became entangled with the augers in the mixer causing her to be pulled into the mixing vat.”

A co-worker heard Lindhart screaming and ran to turn off the machine.

Tragically, CNN reports that Lindhart suffered extensive injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

“We have temporarily close our bakery to determine the cause of this tragic accident and to provide additional safety training and procedures to our team members,” said Reams Corporate in a statement to CNN.

Police believe loose clothing may have caused Lindhart to become caught in the machine.
