    Emergency crews in south suburban Riverdale were on the scene of what appeared to be a fatal workplace accident Wednesday afternoon.

    It happened at Riverside Materials near 130th and State streets on the banks of the Cal-Sag River.

    Crews were initially called in on an emergency response for a person who fell in a wood grinder, but the extrication was switched over to a body recovery effort.

    Officials confirm the victim is a male.

    There's no word on how the accident happened.
