It happened around 2:45 p.m. Thursday at the plant's 24483 Sussex Highway location, according to DSP Sgt. Richard Bratz. He said Jalen Benson, of Seaford, was working at the plant when he became entangled in a piece of equipment.

Benson was later transported to Christiana Hospital in stable condition, Bratz said.
