A woman is in hospital after she was pulled into an industrial mixer in Scarborough Thursday afternoon.
The incident happened near Weybright Court and Midland Avenue around 12:30 p.m., according to officials.
“We responded this afternoon to a woman in an industrial accident,” Toronto Fire Platoon Chief James Green told CTV News Toronto.
“We had to extricate her from the machine."
