The woman was taken to Baptist Hospital where she died from severe chest and arm injuries on Tuesday morning.

That closing will affect more than 100 employees.

Workers were sent home after the incident and grief counseling is being made available.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating.

The plant makes materials for paper mills.
