Worker crushed in rotating machine

A factory in Ashton-under-Lyne in the UK has been fined £26,000 (approx. $39,500 or €32,000) after one of its workers suffered major injuries when he became trapped in rotating machinery.

The employee was pulled into a 14-foot-high metal-shaping machine when his overalls became entangled. He was working at ADA Machining Services Ltd on Kayley Industrial Estate, Richmond Street, on 2 January 2008.
