When A Ticker-Tape Parade Comes All At Once

Actually- it's when a "4600 pound roll of paper" rolls into another 4600 pound roll of paper- and you happen to be standing in between the two...


It happened Tuesday morning around 10:15 a.m. and the Burd & Fletcher printing facility in the GeoSpace caves in Independence MO..

The AMR-EMS unit taking the male patient/victim to Centerpoint Medical Center told the hospital that the man was standing between the two massive rolls of paper when one started rollingtoward the man and the other paper roll.


The man became trapped between the two rolls- but according to the AMR paramedic the man's injuries weren't at all severe.


Otherwise- we wouldn't have make light of this incident with the headline....

If I had the particulars on that incident as I was on my way to the scene as a firefighter or EMS provider, I would have been thinking the worst.

Thank God it wasn't at all bad!

Sounds like it was a pressing issue.
