A 63-year-old man suffered major injuries on the job after his arm became stuck inside a machine and got severed just below the elbow. According to a news article in The Orange County Register, the industrial accident occurred the night of May 17, 2012 at GE Aviation Systems at 2040 E. Dyer Road in Santa Ana. When emergency personnel arrived at the plant, they found the man’s arm still stuck in the machinery. Co-workers had created a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.
