Mum ‘boiled alive’ in molten caramel

A MUM suffered a horrific death when molten caramel suddenly gushed into a huge tank she was cleaning at a confectionery factory in Russia.

Natalia Nemets, 36, is believed to have "boiled alive" in the appalling accident in the city of Stary Oskol in the Belgorod Oblast region.

Her colleagues noticed she was not at her place in the factory and when they searched for her they were shocked to see only her legs poking out of the caramel in the tank.

They could do nothing to save the mum, who was married with a 10-year-old son called Ivan.

A worker told newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda: "She did not cry, no other noise was heard."

"She was cleaning the mixer when the caramel suddenly began to flow into the bowl.

"She got boiled alive, this is true.

"The caramel was removed from the giant bowl and only then was her body was taken out.

"Besides the fact that it was boiling caramel, in the bowl there are moving blades that constantly mix the caramel."

The dead woman's sister Yulia said: "Her child is with us now."

The Komsomolskaya Pravda report added: "Two versions are being considered now - because of the high air temperature in the working room Natalia fainted and somehow fell into the bowl.

"The second version is that she stumbled."

A labour commission has already started investigating the case and is expected to release a report in 15 days.
