|Crystal Bean attempts scalding herself|
When Bean's wife was told of his accident, she tried to join him by jumping into bed and pouring hot coffee on her face. Luckily she was stopped by a neighbor and the high priced coffee was saved. Later in an exclusive interview, she told Dave Taylor how relieved she was when she heard that her husbands death was in instant. "He might have fallen into a vat of coffee crystals and he would have known the difference," she said, sipping an iced coffee. "He was a coffee nut!"
Officials at the coffee plant said the plant would be closed until tomorrow, while they strain the vat for any of Bean's remains. A memorial will be held pending notification of relatives and coffee plantation workers.
