New Bedford Police say an industrial accident led to a man's death early this morning.

Police say Victor Gerena, 35, was in the process of flushing out a shellfish "shucking" machine at about 1:30 AM when the accident happened at the Sea Watch International Seafood Co. at 15 Antonio Costa Boulevard.

He became entangled in a rotary, turbine engine and it took the fire department approximately an hour to free the man after dismantling parts of the machinery.

He was pronounced deceased at the scene.
