Man injures hand at recycling center

A man was taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center after he was injured at the Fort Dodge Regional Recycling Center Friday morning, according to Fire Depatment Lt. Steve Teske.

Teske said the man, who he declined to identify due to privacy laws, had his hand caught in what was described as a “baling machine.”

Firefighters were sent to the scene around 9:17 a.m., and by the time they arrived, Teske said the man’s hand had already been removed from the machine.

The extent of the man’s injuries and condition were not immediately available.
