A man from Lovell, Wyoming recently had his hand amputated while working at American Colloid, a mining and manufacturing plant.
The man was standing on a ladder 10 feet above the ground while attempting to fix a problem with a screw conveyor. The man’s right hand became stuck in the conveyor and was amputated. He was flown to a hospital in Denver, Colorado where he is currently still in treatment.
The accident is currently being investigated by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, who said they will most likely be issuing the company a fine for the accident.
