WASHINGTON — A man is recovering in a local hospital after he was trapped on a machine in a Prince George’s County recycling center.
Shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, county firefighters went to the 2000 block of Kenilworth Avenue in Chapel Oaks to find the man — apparently in his late 20s. His legs were tangled in a conveyor belt, according to the Prince George’s fire department.
Crews were able to pull the man from the conveyor belt. He has traumatic injuries to both legs, and was taken to a nearby trauma center. The man’s injuries are serious, but non-life-threatening.
