Abstract
An 18-year-old male laborer (the victim) died of injuries at a pork processing facility when he was caught between an automatic back splitting saw and a guardrail. There were no witnesses to the incident and MN FACE investigators were denied permission to perform a site inspection. Due to the lack of adequate information sources, a detailed report of this incident and recommendations for the prevention of similar incidents could not be written. However, a brief summary of the incident using information obtained in a police report has been written.
