A man’s leg was crushed in a machine at a Pepsi-Cola plant in Tampa recently. The worker had been trapped in a conveyor rail system at the plant near the University of South Florida. According to the St. Petersburg Times, this was the third major casualty at the plant in six months. The 39-year-old man was cleaning the system when co-workers heard him scream. It took members of Tampa Fire Rescue’s heavy equipment team nearly 90 minutes to free the man from the machinery. The man was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. According to the Times, a man was killed and another injured in March when a lift failed in the plant’s warehouse.
