Worker killed after falling into meat grinder
A man died when he fell into a meat grinder at a West Australian abattoir recently. The 36-year-old man was working at the Hillside Meats abattoir in Narrogin, 192 km south-east of Perth, when he fell into the meat auger.
The 30 metre long auger, which runs inside a horizontal trough, is used to grind meat offcuts and offal for processing. St John Ambulance and the Fire and Emergency Services Authority went to the scene after workmates were unable to free the man.
"They had to pull the machine apart to get him out," a police spokesman said.
