Man Falls into Vinegar Vat at Salamida

Emergency crews rescued a man who fell into a vat of vinegar on Monday.

Police say the worker at the Rob Salamida Company lost consciousness from inhaling too many fumes while cleaning a vinegar holding container.

The man was removed from the vat but suffered chemical irritation injuries and also had trouble breathing.

He was taken to Wilson Hospital for treatment. The company did not respond to a request for comment.
