News Nov 19, 2012

Nov. 19--A 66-year-old man was seriously injured at the Domino Sugar factory in Baltimore on Sunday afternoon when his right arm was caught in a large piece of machinery, according to the city Fire Department.

Emergency personnel responded to the refinery in the 1100 block of Key Highway in Riverside at 2:54 p.m., and began providing medical treatment to the man as workers labored to disassemble the machine and free the man's arm, said Captain Roman Clark, a fire spokesman.

"He was stuck there for an hour and 45 minutes," Clark said.

Once freed from the machine, the man was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious injuries, Clark said.

The Domino Sugar factory was opened in 1922, its large signage an iconic part of the city's skyline.

A company spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.
