A man's arm was torn off at the elbow in an accident Wednesday afternoon in Lexington.
A Stanley Pipeline crew was working on Hagerman Court near downtown about 4:30 p.m. when one of the workers checked on a piece of equipment that had stopped working; the machine kicked back as the man grabbed it, WKYT reported.
Coworkers stopped the bleeding before emergency crews arrived. The man was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
