MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – A man in his 50s accidentally severed his arm Thursday morning while he was working on an industrial machine in Miami Gardens, authorities confirmed.

The incident was reported shortly after 9:30 a.m. at Fiori Bruna, a business that makes gourmet pasta, according to its website. It happened at a warehouse in the 5300 block of Northwest 163rd Street.

Police said it’s unclear what type of machine was being used when the incident occurred.

According to police, the victim was alert while being airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. Sky 10 was above the scene as a first responder from the air rescue crew jumped out of the helicopter carrying a medical cooler, which what we assume was the severed arm.

Local 10 News reporter Annaliese Garcia knocked on the front door of the business, however an employee said they had no comment at this time. Local 10 News reporter Ian Margol called the business. Again, they said they had no comment.

There is no word on the victim’s condition or whether his arm was able to be reattached.
