GEORGIA (From news reports) -- A Rome man was seriously injured in an accident at International Paper in Coosa late Wednesday, April 24.

A number of social media posts have gone up, asking the community to pray for Timmy Obenlander.

Kelly Trumbo, communications manager with International Paper, confirmed there was an incident on-site Wednesday evening where a team member was injured and transported to a local hospital.

They are in the investigative process to determine exactly what happened, adding that safety is a priority.

"We want to make sure that we are taking care of our team members," she said.
