    At least her name wasn’t...Patty. (Sorry. Too soon?)

    RIP. And...blerf! Horrible.
    This happened in the 80’s - my high school Spanish teacher was a pastor on weekends, and he told our class on a Monday that he’d just conducted a memorial service for one of his church members who worked at McDonald’s processing plant. He pushed meat through a grinder with a long stick, but fell in one day. The plant threw out a LOT of meat just to ensure dude wasn’t in there. What a way to go.

    Barf!

    I knew a lady who got a boob caught in some sort of pressing machine. It didn't kill her, but man can you imagine the pain and embarrassment?

    Not when she started her shift it wasn't.
    What you want to bet that somebody somewhere in the next week or so bites into a burger and says, "Hey, this tastes a lot like chicken".

    I'll let you know if it happens to be me.

    Dang poor woman, I remember when I worked in a factory and saw some guy get his hand crushed and mangled in a metal press, he ended up having to have his hand amputated.

    The article said it took 45 minutes for them to get the machine apart to get to her. Can you imagine being one of those people?

    Yeah.
    Hopefully none of them were planning to have ground beef for dinner that night.

    I have one that fits my Kitchen Aide machine. Probably could only get up to my elbow in it. We will never know.

    You maybe could if you push it in slowly but steadily and alternate the angle of insertion a bit.
    You know, let it kind of grind one side down a bit, then the other - sort of like an old school (literally) pencil sharpener.

    It'd be a lot of work but I bet you can grind it all the way up to the collar bone before you need some kind of saw to continue the job.

    I do remember them - those go back to even before Windows XP.
    Still got one by chance?
