A 53-year old married mother of two, a cleaning supervisor for a meat processing factory, was decapitated in a bizarre accident involving a piece of the factory’s machinery she was cleaning. The incident happened around 3.am. Saturday.
Bernard Hoggarth, Delico chief executive, said: â€œThis is horrendous for her family and for everyone who was working at the factory at the time. Itâ€™s such a tragic incident â€” weâ€™ve never experienced anything like it.â€
He went on to state that he was not sure how the accident could ahve happened as: â€œThe machine was not a slicer, it doesnâ€™t have blades and there were no exposed parts.â€
The Delico plant where the accident occurred produces pre-cooked ham and pork for supermarkets and high street shops and was just sold to Hull-based sausage-maker Cranswick in November.Bizarre, Decapitation
