Chinese woman dies after being accidentally dumped by loader into sand crusher
A Chinese woman inspecting a ceramics factory in China’s Hubei Province was suddenly and accidentally scooped up by a loader and dumped into a sand crusher, and local authorities have confirmed that she has died from “asphyxiation.”
Video has surfaced on Weibo of a woman inspecting earthmovers in a ceramics factory at 9:44 a.m. on Feb. 24 in Zhicheng Township of Yidu City, according to a netizen who posted the video. The woman appears to direct a large blue truck, and as she warily watches it back up, a loader suddenly lurches forward and sweeps her off her feet and into its bucket.
The loader then plows into a mound of sand and scoops it up, burying the woman deeper inside the bucket. Apparently oblivious to the precarious position of the woman or her screaming, the driver of loader backs the machine up, before turning toward the sand crusher and dumping its contents inside.
