A man working at a factory in a state the borders Georgia lost his left arm and, perhaps, part of his right arm in an industrial accident. The man's work-related injury has also left him in critical but stable condition at a major hospital. At the time of the accident, he had to be taken via helicopter to the hospital for treatment.
The man and his co-worker were working on a "two-man press", a device that is used in the manufacturing of auto parts. Apparently, as the man put his arm into the machine either to repair it or retrieve something, his co-worker activated the machine with the man's arm still in it. Reports are describing this accident as a breakdown of communication, implying that the co-worker did not know that the man was going to work on the interior of the machine when the co-worker started it.
