8) Man Survives Being Pulled Through A Wood Chipper
Frank Arce from Longview, Washington had made the poor decision to climb inside a wood chipper to shift a blockage this week. I’m not sure if that’s the normal thing to do when faced with a problem inside a machine capable of killing you, maybe it is. Anyway, Frank got in there and the machine decided to spring to life and started whipping him with six-inch prongs designed to strip trees and branches.
The 23-year-old was heard screaming inside the machine so his colleagues took that as a request to shut it down. Frank survived but certainly didn’t get off lightly: seven broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken ankle, broken pelvis and a fractured knee.
You could call this a lucky escape if you like but there doesn’t seem anything lucky about it at all to me.
