Worker pulled into warping machine. No gore. 2:14 video:
Here's some information on a different but similar accident from 2006, from the California Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (CA/FACE) Program. This one also involved a worker being pulled into a warping machine in the Los Angeles area: California FACE Report #06CA006.

Yep gotta be on the ball around machines.
Place where my father & I worked at have rolling mills with 2 large contra-rotating rollers. Of course if you get too close it will feed you in, then spit you out the other side as a 2 inch slab!!!
So a chest height bar was installed. Trip it with your body and machine stops. Been a while, but think from memory it then reversed to push you back out. But anyhoo you get the general jist.
Group of Indians (subcontinent) came round on a factory tour. The inevitable question about the bar came out. Their repsonse was, Oh we don't have that kind of thing over there!. Theres 50 blokes outside looking for a job...." Don't really need to spell the rest of that conversation out to the masses.
