A 26-year-old sausage factory worker suffered a grisly end when he slipped and fell feet first into a meat grinder which chewed off his legs and killed him.


Father-of-four Michael Raper was trapped from the waist down for two excruciating hours after he become entangled in the huge auger at the Bar S Foods plant in Lawton, Oklahoma.

Amid gruesome scenes co-workers watched in horror before frantic emergency workers managed to cut the machine in half and free him.

Hummm I love Bar-S hotdogs. I wonder if they will charge more for that run. Althought in looking at the guys picture it was not very lean meat.

That's a bad way to go.

Maybe not as DISGUSTING as the guy who fell into the raw sewage and drowned at the sewage treatment plant a few years ago, but certainly more PAINFUL.

Screw that. When I go, I hope it's in a really fucked up way that has the local cops/firemen/EMS guys laughing their asses off.

Seriously though, that sucks. For him, his family, his coworkers, and for the emergency personnel that responded.

I work fire/EMS and if you can't laugh at some of this shit you won't last long.


I bet every party he shows up to now is a total sausage fest. Seriously though that's an awful way to go.
The desire to build a risk-free society has always been a sign of decadence. It has meant that the nation has given up, that it no longer believes in its destiny, that it has ceased to aspire to greatness, and has retired from history to pet itself.
