    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.

    Ole Mike said he was ready to get off early and hit the links.

    Seriously folks, I am here all week. Try the Mikeloaf..er, uh, I mean the meatloaf!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nasty.

    Hopefully Fire/EMS pumped him full of fentanyl and valium to make him comfortable before he died.

    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.
