Indiana Worker’s Arm Crushed in Machine Press

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A northeastern Indiana fire official says a steel plant worker in Fort Wayne was severely injured when his armed was crushed in a machine press.

Deputy Fort Wayne Fire Chief Mark Nelson says the man's arm became caught Monday morning in the press at the Valbruna Slater Stainless plant. He tells The Journal Gazette (http://bit.ly/VOSwxW ) the man's arm was nearly amputated by the machine and he may lose his arm.

When medics and firefighters arrived at the plant the man had been freed from the press, but his clothing was still tangled in the machinery. Authorities did not release the man's name.

Valbruna Slater Stainless makes steel bars for use in airplane landing gear, jet engines and other products.
