Feet First into the Meat Grinder
I can only imagine the hell of going to this call.
A 26-year-old sausage factory worker suffered a grisly end when he slipped and fell feet first into a meat grinder which chewed off his legs and killed him.
Father-of-four Michael Raper was trapped from the waist down for two excruciating hours after he become entangled in the huge auger at the Bar S Foods plant in Lawton, Oklahoma.
Amid gruesome scenes co-workers watched in horror before frantic emergency workers managed to cut the machine in half and free him.

That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

Bar S is one of my favorite brands.
I would imagine it was the wurst case scenario for that job.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a guy in our county get sucked into an auger inside of a silo up to his waist. He lived for a half hour after the emergency crew got there. I'm glad I wasn't involved.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

That's awful. I wonder how he was able to fall into a running machine, one would think there should have been a grate or something to prevent him from falling in.
Many years ago there was a guy in the facility where I worked who got his fingers pulled into moving rollers that were 3/16" apart - he was wearing gloves while cleaning out a part of the machinery and the tip of his glove got caught and pulled his hand through. He survived but lost some of his fingers. It was a mess. In his case, he was supposed to have locked out the machine before cleaning it and chose not to do so.

It's helpful to accident/safety investigators like myself when police/troopers are first on scene and take lots of pictures before the scene is changed. Employers like to clean up after serious accidents if LE or Fire depart the scene but before OSHA gets there.
For my first fatality, APD actually secured the scene for us once AFD paramedics cleared out. I beat the M.E. there and got to document the scene before the M.E. recovered the body. APD dispatch and AFD dispatch are usually pretty good about calling our office to let us know of a workplace accident or fatality after they dispatch their units. AK State Troopers are usually good about calling us too.Verified Libra- There sure are a lot of people born in August around here.

My mind is trying to wrap itself around how you might save that guy.
If the time to cut him out didn't result in a bleed out, unpinning the legs itself would open up the arteries.

Work can be such a grind.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

You don't live through that, period, unfortunately, even with a surgeon there. By the time he/she can get at what they'd need to tie off, it's already too late.

There have been some rescue cases where they have people pinned in like that and you know when you free them it will kill them, the hard part for me would be knowing that they will not make it, do you call the family in to say their good byes or not.
