ORRINGTON – Some tense moments Thursday morning at the PERC Plant in Orrington.
Local rescuers were called to the plant shortly after 9:00 a.m. after a person became trapped under a pile of garbage.
The facility is used to burn trash in order to turn it into energy. Inside are very large piles of garbage that are collected before being processed.
There are few details available about what happened, but we know the person was freed and the ambulance could be seen leaving the scene.
We’ll have more information as soon as it’s available.
