Adams County Coroner Leslie Cook says emergency crews were called to Manley Meats around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday for a report of two unresponsive people. In a statement, Cook says work was being done on a sewer pit when one or both people became unresponsive.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cook says an autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause and manner of death. The victims were not identified.

Manley Meats posted on Facebook Wednesday night that the business will be closed Thursday "due to a family tragedy."
