The unidentified man, 29, was trapped near the blade of the massive mixer on Saturday night at BCW Food Products in Dallas, and suffered serious injuries, KXAS-TV, Dallas, reported Monday.
Firefighters had to cut around the heavy-duty equipment and dough to reach the victim, and Dallas Fire Rescue called in its Urban Search and Rescue Team, a specialized unit trained in unusual and complex rescues, to assist, the television station reported.
The victim had been working near a machine that mixes flour to make bread, a company spokesman said.
WFAA-TV, Dallas, said it took two hours to disassemble the equipment to get the victim out, and a surgical team from nearby Parkland Memorial Hospital was called to the facility to assist. He was taken to the hospital after the incident.
