Woman in hospital after her hair gets stuck in machine
A 25 year-old Ohio woman is recovering at the hospital after a painful accident at a car parts company ripped off her scalp. The employee was just finishing her first week at the plant when her long hair became entangled in a machine.
According to KSEE 24 News, her scalp was torn off at her eyebrows and pulled back to her neck. Other workers could only helpless watch on and wait for paramedics to arrive before she could be cut loose.
Surgeons were able to reattach about 75 percent of her scalp, but the remaining quarter was too mangled. She is expected to undergo plastic surgery in the future.
