Cleaning Lady Scalped By Giant Meat Blending Machine

Did you ever read Upton Sinclair's The Jungle? Yeah, things haven't changed as much as we would like to think.

Mrs Trebilcock was inspecting a blender used to mix four tonnes of meat when she crouched beneath the machine to inspect a flap, where the load is discharged, to ensure it was clean.

But the flap closed suddenly with substantial force acting like a pair of 'scissors' cutting off the top of her head above the eyebrows.

Grim. Naturally DeliCo Ltd, the UK-based meat processing plant where the incident occurred, was found to be in breach of health and safety codes—a charge to which they have pleaded guilty. What's even more disturbing is that makes three machine murders in four days. Don't trust your gadgets people—especially your toaster (the most evil of all home appliances). [Daily Mail via Fark]
