A worker at the South Seattle Seadrunar recycling plant was taken to Harborview Medical Center after being crushed by a machine Tuesday morning.
“What we have been told was this was one of the employees who was working on the hydraulic lift system for the Dumpsters,” Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Helen Fitzpatrick said.
The man appears to have accidentally hit a switch while working on the lift just before 11a.m. The machinery crushed his head, Fitzpatrick said.
