SUPERIOR, WI (KDAL) - Superior Police have identified the person killed in an industrial accident Tuesday evening.  The victim was David M. Clink, a 30 year old resident of Superior.  He was working alone at the White Cedar Shingles and Lumber Company at 2700 WInter Street and was found unresponsive by a co-worker.  It appeared that Clink's arm or some of his clothing got caught in a conveyor belt system pinning him against the machinery and he was asphyxiated.  OSHA is on the scene and is conducting their investigation into the incident.
