Kane County Coroner Rob Russell said that Escobar was taken to an area hospital following the incident and was pronounced dead Thursday night, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The cause of death was listed as asphyxiation due to mechanical failure, the coroner said.

The Geneva Fire Department said it was called to Bar Technologies shortly after 7pm on Thursday when it was informed that a person was trapped inside part of the machinery.

By the time firefighters arrived, the man had been removed from the machine by a colleague.

The death is believed to be under investigation by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Bar Technologies is located on Fluid Power Drive in Geneva, Illinois, and has been in business for more than 20 years, according to the company’s website.

“Bar Technologies was founded in 1997 to service our sister company, Industrial Hard Chrome,” the website says.

“The industry was not able to deliver a bar to our rigorous quality specifications and so we started making our own.”

Bar Technologies did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment on what happened to Escobar.

The company has yet to issue a statement on Saturday afternoon.
