In a car manufacturing plant in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, an accident occurred when a worker in his 50s was caught in the head of a press machine.

Today (15th), around 12:40 during the day, a 54-year-old worker A was found in a press factory at Ssangyong Motors, Pyeongtaek, under the press machine.

Mr. A was moved to the hospital, but he died.

It was found that Mr. A, who was alone at the time, was working to remove scrap metal from the press machine.

Field officials estimate that the sensor, which stops the machine when the operator, etc. is detected, is not activated.

The police are investigating the exact nature of the accident against their A-mates while also looking at areas where safety measures have not been properly implemented.
