PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An employee at a local grocery store in Portland, Oregon, was being treated after getting their hand stuck in a meat tenderizer on Thursday, according to Portland Fire & Rescue.
Officials say four fingers on the victim’s right hand were entrapped in the machine up to the second knuckle.
Personnel from Portland Fire & Rescue reportedly used an angle grinder to make a relief cut of the tenderizer, which helped them be able to force the machine open to remove the victim’s hand.
The victim was then taken to the Oregon Health & Science University Trauma Center.
