So that was Mrs. Lundegaard on the floor in there. And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of money. There's more to life than a little money, you know. Don'tcha know that? And here ya are, and it's a beautiful day. Well. I just don't understand it.

He sounds tired.

With helpful pictures of what pre-shredded tires might look like.  That's some reporting.

Good thing he didn't fall into a foot shredder!

Apparently it's a multi-purpose shredder
 
2013-03-19 05:06:13 PM  
They should require that those things be either unplugged (or whatever the equivalent of an 'unplugged' is for a machine with a PS that big) or all fuel removed before even attempting a cleaning. In fact, there should be some sort of fuse or something you can remove to make sure the machine cannot possibly turn on.

Hey took the job, he knew what he was getting into.  I say let him shred.

Yeah the idea of having any goddamn thing "mangled" in one of those is pretty unappealing...

I don't have tires for legs, so I'm OK I guess.

According to the article, it seems like that sort of thing IS required and the employer wasn't keeping up with the regulations.

He's not going to be able to sue...he doesn't have a leg to stand on!
 
2013-03-19 05:09:08 PM  
A report in the New York Daily News said that the man was cleaning the machine when it suddenly powered up and he fell in.

So...new career doing lockout/tagout PSA videos, then?

You don't know that. Please be less presumptuous in future.

I wonder what his chances of winning his coming lawsuit.  Come on play-one-on-fark lawyers, does he have a leg to stand on?

Does this mean we can recycle all the Pistorius jokes from a few weeks ago?  Trouble's afoot, methinks.

I'm going to guess that it did, but it wasn't used.  When I was a teenager, we sometimes had to climb into the compactor at the Payless Drugs that I worked at to unjam the compactor.  It had a key you were supposed to take with you when doing that so no one could turn it on while you were in it.  We didn't always bother.

/Thing was so slow I doubt you could have gotten trapped.

Yeah. Piss poor maintenance procedures. Either that, or these idiots were trying to save some time and "hassle" by circumventing maintenace procedures. Power should have been shut off, and locked out/tagged out to prevent any yahoo from turning it on again. I'm sorry for the dude, but I also say "Fuggin' moron..."

I can see an ICBM needing two keys to start.
I would think a tire shredder would need one key to start.
If I was working on it I'd like that key in my pocket.

"In April 2012, Scott Johnson, a temporary employee at Rumpke, one of the largest landfills in the United States, got caught in a tyre shredding machine in Ohio.

Firefighters reported that the machine had to be taken apart to free him.

He died of his injuries in the hospital a few days later."

Is referring to another similar incident in Ohio.  Not the dude the article is about.

It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.
