What. a. lousy. way. to. die.

According to a report on, a worker was killed this morning by a giant roll of newsprint at the Schuylkill Printing Plant for the Inquirer and Daily News: 

Initial reports from the scene indicated that the victim was a railroad worker who was crushed around 9:30 a.m. when he opened a boxcar and the roll fell out.


If you’ve never seen those rolls in person, they are massive. Giant rolls of paper, wound tightly, stacked and transported in a variety of ways. 

Sadly, it’s possible that this worker’s death is reported tomorrow in an oh-so-meta way on the very same paper that killed him.
