Baler Accident

This might be a little off subject but safety is important. I'm posting from a news story in our local newspaper. I'm removing the names from the story.

" A 49 year old man died thursday night after being sucked into a hay baler on a farm....
.....was working on the round bale baler when he got caught in the machinery...
....He and his brother were baling hay when the accident occurred.
His brother was raking hay and looked over and saw the baler, but did not see anybody around it.
His brother then saw that a bale was still in the baler, released it and found his brother in the bale."

This sounds like an impossible story. Use common sense when operating machinery. Things like this don't need to happen.

Safety first,
William Parris
