“He was pinned between two heavy objects and had noticeable marks on his chest,” Grabenstetter said. “He had internal injuries.”

The accident occurred about 11:20 a.m. inside a building at Shiloh Industries Inc., 880 Steel Drive.

Grabenstetter said co-workers discovered Russ unconscious inside the facility.

“They got him out of the spot he was in, but could not resuscitate him,” Grabenstetter said.

Russ was transported to the hospital by Liverpool Township rescuers, according to Fire Chief Jack Petrone. The Medina County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.

Additional details regarding the accident were not available Thursday. Shiloh Industries declined to comment.
