Because he was allergic to dust from barley, this farmer used a scarf to wrap around his face to filter the allergen out while working. But one day the scarf got entangled in a rotating shaft of the elevator machine and kept tightening around his neck until the head was severed clean off. Farmer’s decapitated body was found on the ground next to the machine while his head was in a trailer full of barley.
Photos are rather old so quality is not quite there, but it’s an interesting set demonstrating workplace safety fail. I must say – being allergic to barley when barley farming is what you do has got to suck a big one.
