A 44-year-old construction worker was injured in a construction accident on Tuesday. His arm was almost severed after being crushed in a machine.
According to officials, the 44-year-old man reached into a piece of equipment to clean out something he thought had become stuck.
His arm was then caught in a roller, crushing it severely between the shoulder and elbow, according to an official with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
He was airlifted to a hospital in Scottsdale where he is listed in serious condition. The site is a future Jack in the Box restaurant. No one else was hurt in the accident. The accident is being investigated by local authorities and the Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
