Pilgrim's Pride employee injured on the job by machinery

ATHENS — A Pilgrim's Pride employee suffered injuries in
an on-the-job accident Friday afternoon, Athens firefighters said.

Firefighter Chris Gillman said the employee apparently struck his head on a piece of machinery at the Pryor Street plant at about 2:15 p.m.

The man suffered lacerations and swelling, but was conscious when emergency personnel arrived, Gillman said.

An ambulance took him to Athens-Limestone Hospital. His condition was not available.
