Just saw the details of what happened after I posted a comment to a different link.
Nothing funny about this.PERIOD.
I used to work around these augers and they will pull you in and eventually tear you to pieces.And there is usually no way to free a person unless you amputate the body part.But I also know these have covers on them to protect anyone from getting their clothing wrapped up in them.What happened to the guarding???
