Meat-packer has a lucky escape after being crushed by half a ton of BACON
The man was buried beneath up to 600kg of the meat but escaped serious harm.
A meat-packer in Sweden had a lucky escape – after being crushed under half a tonne of BACON. The man was pinned under up to 600kg of the meat after a trolley carrying packages of the thinly-sliced pork toppled over. The freak accident took place in a warehouse in the meatpacking area of Gothenburg’s Gamlestaden district.
Police spokesman Peter Adlersson told The Local: "I don’t know exactly how it happened, but somehow the trolley fell over. I’ve never heard of anything like this. It’s a rather unusual accident, you might say."
The man was conscious when he was taken to Sahlgrenska University Hospital with unspecified injuries. However, according to Adlersson, doctors later said the man had escaped serious harm. “We’ve learned that he sustained minor back injuries as a result of the accident," Adlersson said.
The Swedish Work Environment Authority will now review the accident to see if a formal investigation is required.
