Man recovering after arm was caught in printing press
Sussex-based cereal packaging plant Nature's Path employee Alonso Corral, 23, is recovering from injuries he sustained after his arm was caught in a printing press.
According to a police report, Corral was attempting to clear a jam in a flaker machine and his hand got stuck in the rollers. Sussex Fire Chief Corky Curtis said maintenance personnel from the nearby Quad/Graphics printing plant were called to assist firefighters because of the size and weight of the equipment in which Corral’s arm was caught. It took about an hour and a half to disassemble some of the equipment and separate rollers on the press in order to free the arm, according to the chief.
A company spokesman said Corral is still being treated and is doing well. A spokeswoman from OSHA said they are investigating the accident and might have an update in about two weeks.
