Man skinned alive at slaughterhouse
The 27-year-old was cleaning the machines at the Danish Crown Slaughterhouse in Sæby when he was caught by one of the rollers and mowed into the so-called deskinning machine. According to the paper Extra Bladet, he was pulled through the massive machines a couple of times before a colleague heard the noise and managed to turn off the machines.
He was serious injured, and he was immediately taken to the hospital in Aalborg.
Its not life threatening, but he has been seriously injured, said Otto Jystrup at the Directorate of Labor Inspection in Aalborg. There are a lot to patch together.
The machine resembles a carwash, where brushes moves back and forth over the surface while rotating, but there the brushes consists of small metal plates which scrape off the bristle of the pigs, Jystrup said.
The 27-year-old, who is of Afghani descent, has an open cranium fracture, pelvis fracture, and several bone fractures, in addition to many large wounds.
