CANARSIE — A worker at a Brooklyn bakery was found dead inside the company’s walk-in freezer Thursday morning, police said.

Police didn’t immediately say whether the 33-year-old man had been trapped in the freezer, and the cause of death was to be determined by the medical examiner. The man’s body was discovered in the morning by a co-worker at the Beigel’s bakery in Canarsie.

There were no signs of trauma on the man’s body, police said. His identity was withheld by police pending notification of family.

A bakery manager outside the facility called the situation “devastating.”

Beigel’s is known for its signature black-and-white cookies. It was started by a family in Poland in 1934 before they came to New York City and opened in Manhattan. The bakery later moved to Brooklyn.
