In the United States, two employees of the American giant were rescued after mysteriously falling into a giant tank. Firefighters had to urgently cut the structure to save them

An improbable accident occurred on Thursday June 9 at the factory of the food and chocolate confectionery juggernaut Mars Wrigley in Pennsylvania, in the northeastern United States. According to Fox News and CNN, two people were rescued and hospitalized after falling into one of the company’s giant vats, which was full of chocolate. For now, no details have been provided on why these employees found themselves in such a bad position, unable to climb out of the tank filled with cocoa.

According to the emergency services, the firefighters had to cut an opening in the structure of the tank to get them out as quickly as possible.

The Mars family group – whose best-known brands are Mars chocolates and confectionery, Wrigley (chewing gum), Milky Way, Snickers, M & M’s as well as Uncle Ben’s rice or Royal Canin dog food – presents itself as the world leader in chocolate and chewing gum with an annual turnover of more than 30 billion dollars and some 100,000 employees.
