This young woman was working on a tomato-slicing machine when the machine caught her hand. Her supervisor told her to keep on working because she needed tomatoes! Thankfully the injuries she received when the machine caught her hand was not a slicing injury, but a twisting injury which caused carpal tunnel syndrome, so that she could only work using one hand. The employer and their insurance company not only denied she was injured, but refused to pay medical bills for the carpal tunnel said injury.
