Georgia-Pacific gives update on injured worker at Pineland, Texas facility

TEXAS (From news reports) -- Georgia-Pacific has given an update on a worker who was critically injured in a Thursday morning incident at the company's Pineland facility.

Company spokeswoman Yana Ogletree on Monday said it happened when the worker found himself between two pieces of machinery. "This particular employee was caught between the back of a forklift and a kiln charge at the Pineland facility. Right now we're working through all the investigation, through all the details, to understand what happened", said Ogletree.

Although she declined to identify the worker or to give an update on his condition, Ogletree said that an injury to one employee effects the company as a whole. Ogletree said "This is a member of our Georgia-Pacific family and our thoughts and prayers are with this particular employee, his family, and our employees. As you can imagine, anytime someone is injured it can be very emotional for some employees.

A family member on social media said late last week that although the injuries are very serious, he is expected to survive.
