An employee of the Liberia Agriculture Company (LAC) in Grand Bassa County, Emmanuel Joe, has been minced by the rubber processing machine when it was reportedly turned while he was cleaning it.
The incident occurred on Saturday, August 21, at the rubber processing factory of the Company in Wee Statutory District, Grand Bassa County.
Eyewitnesses told Freedom News that the late Emmanuel Joe was instructed to clean on the rubber processing machine at which time the electrical breaker sending current to the machine was off.
He was minced by the machine after another employee of the company reportedly switched on the breaker, and was recognized by a piece of his hand that was recovered from the floor, and was reportedly the only part of his body that remained.
The 44-year-old and a father of five had worked for LAC for 10 years, according to reports.
LAC Management is tight-lipped on the incident and attempted denying journalists entry into its premises for observation and interviews.
