A temp worker at Amazon.com's Avenel warehouse was crushed to death earlier this month, according to a report in USA Today.
According to the report, the worker, employed by temp firm Abacus, was caught between equipment and crushed to death on December 4.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration is investigating the incident.
"We are deeply saddened and our hearts go out to his family and loved
ones," Amazon spokeswoman Mary Osako was quoted as saying in the report. "Any accident that
occurs in a facility is one too many and we and OSHA are actively
investigating what happened at this site."
The Avenel Amazon warehouse functions as a package-sorting facility, and is run by a third-party company called Genco, according to the report.
