New York State man rescued after being stuck in salt spreader
Well, that’s a really shitty way to start your week.
Police say a New York state man spent more than an hour trapped in a salt spreader on Monday morning before being rescued by first responders. Reports say the unidentified man was housed halfway inside and halfway through the truck spreader. A worker at the facility where the man was loading the salt heard him scream for help.
A police chief said the man in his 30s was loading salt into the spreader when he pulled it inside. Syracuse.com says crews worked an hour and a half to free the trapped man, and were eventually able to get him out by cutting the spreader box. Sources say the man only suffered a minor ankle injury and is expected to be fine.
The crash happened in the town of Sherrill in Oneida County.
More than five thousand Americans died in 2019 from work-related injuries, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Fortunately, this man from New York State did not become another statistic, despite being seriously injured.
WGRZ says it all happened one night in November 2021 when a 40-year-old employee of the Cascade factory became trapped in a roller that feeds the paper. WGRZ says police and firefighters were called to the scene and were able to free the trapped man. Officials say he was taken to a nearby hospital where he is in critical but stable condition. There aren’t too many other details about the accident, like how he got stuck in there in the first place.
