Builder's amazing escape from mixer

A construction worker had an amazing escape in China after he fell into a working concrete mixer.

Xu, 20, was pouring cement into the mixer, in Huangshi, Hubei province, when the bag got caught on a blade, dragging him into the machine.

Luckily, a workmate heard his screams and ran to turn off the mixer before it ground Xu to a pulp, reports the Chutian Metropolis News.

But he was stuck fast and firefighters had to be called out with hydraualic cutting equipment to free him.

"Only his head was outside the blender. His whole body was unmovable," said one firefighter.

"I wouldn't like to even imagine what would have happened to him if his co-worker had been even a few seconds slower in turning off the power."

Eventually, rescuers managed to cut open the machine from both ends and pull out Xu from the blender.

Xu was taken to hospital where doctors treated him for a broken leg and hurt knee but said he would make a full recovery.
