Employee hurt when hand gets caught in machine

A male employee suffered a hand injury when his fingers were caught in a milling machine Monday afternoon at Baker Engineering, 17165 Power Drive, according to Crockery Township Fire Chief Gary Dreyer. Emergency personnel were called to the business about mid-afternoon to help free the man from the trap door of the machine, Dreyer said. Firefighters worked with employees to work out a way to manually open the machine that was still in an automatic mode, trying to pull itself shut, Dreyer said.
