Indiana Worker Is Crushed in Press While On the Job

A Fort Wayne man was severely injured after his arm was caught in a press at the northeast Indiana Valbruna Slater Stainless plant where he was employed. First responder’s indicated that the man’s arm was nearly completely severed when they arrived on scene. There were no specific details at the time of this writing as to whether the arm could be saved from amputation. When responder’s arrived, the man had been removed from the press; however, portions of his clothing remained entangled in the machine. Details concerning the man would not be released until family could be contacted.

The plant, where he was working at the time of his injury, manufacturers, among other things, aviation components.
