DUBAI – A Nepalese maintenance worker was killed on Monday (December 30) after he fell into a meat-mincing machine in Malaysia, an official confirmed.
The victim, 47, was doing maintenance work with three other workers in the factory in Malacca state when the machine was suddenly switched on.
“The machine caught him at his waist. Because of his injuries, he died on the spot,” said Zulkharaini Ramli of the Malacca fire department.
Ramli said it took rescuers 30 minutes to extract the man’s body from the machine. An investigation into the incident is underway. ICA/Expat Media
