Thai worker rescued after getting hand stuck in water bottling machine

This is the moment a worker had to be cut free after getting his hand stuck in a water bottling machine.

Anucha Sowanna, 51, was trying to fix the metal device when it suddenly started spinning and sucked in his arm.

He screamed for help before his family rushed out and called paramedic to the factory in Chachoengsao Thailand on August 5.

Rescue workers arrived and found the man standing by the machine with a pale face. They spent 20 minutes cutting the hand free from the machine.

Anucha was rushed to the Buddhasothorn hospital where he was treated for fractures. He said: "I'm so grateful to all the rescue team for helping me. I am feeling fine, but it is better to let the doctor check everything in case there are any internal injuries.''

Speaking in the video, one of the rescue workers said Anucha was lucky not to have his arm ripped off. He added: "We recommend turning the machines off before doing any repair works on them."
