A 67-year-old former mayor in New York state was killed and two other people were hurt Wednesday morning when a food processor being tested for guacamole production exploded, according to a report.

Joe Kapp, who served as mayor of Rensselaer in the 1990s and was currently vice chairman of the Board of Trustees at Hudson Valley Community College in nearby Troy, succumbed to his injuries after he and the other victims were taken to a hospital after the incident in Schenectady, N.Y., the Albany Times-Union reported.

All three had been hurt by a “high-pressure vessel,” Schenectady Fire Department Assistant Chief Don Mareno told the newspaper. Mareno said the other two victims had less serious injuries.
