• Woman's arm extricated from dough-making machine


    SEATTLE - Crews freed a woman’s arm that was caught inside of a dough-making machine Friday, said Seattle Fire Department officials.

    Seattle fire responded to the 400 block of Broadway East to a report of an industrial accident just before 12:30 p.m.

    According to fire officials, it took a technical team 27 minutes to free the woman from the machine. A stainless steel rod from the dough maker was lodged in her arm, and crews cut her out of the machine. 

    After the woman’s arm was extricated from the industrial equipment, she was taken to Harborview Medical Center. 

    Fire officials said the woman was conscious, alert and in stable condition. 

    Friday’s incident was the second day in a row that someone’s arm was stuck in an industrial machine in Seattle.

    On Thursday, a 55-year-old man’s left arm was severed after his arm became stuck in a machine at an International District fortune cookie company.
