The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the death of a Rock Spring woman at a local carpet mill.

Lois Mae McGill, 53, died Sunday morning from head trauma, according to Whitfield County Coroner Bobbie Dixon.

McGill was injured in an industrial accident at Oriental Weavers, 3314 S. Dug Gap Road, early Friday morning, according to Whitfield County 911 officials.

A spokeswoman for OSHA said Monday she could not elaborate because the investigation had just begun.

Officials with Oriental Weavers did not immediately return phone calls Monday.

The Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office is also investigating. A complete report was not available Monday afternoon.
