New York, NY Caught in Dough Mixer, Feb 1930


(By Associated Press)

New York, Feb. 11.--Carmello Congelio, 18, of Brooklyn was extracted from a dough-mixing machine in a Brooklyn bakery early yesterday after a struggle of four hours and a half. Doctors said his right arm would have to be amputated.

Left alone in the bakery about 9 o'clock Sunday night he somehow placed his right arm in the mixing machine, was pulled into it bodily and his right arm crushed between two steel rollers, normally about half an inch apart.

For two hours he was in the machine before a helper returned, and for two hours and a half more nine policemen, doctors and helpers worked before he was freed.
