Emergency crews responded Tuesday morning to an industrial incident at a North Strabane plant in which a man's arm became stuck in a machine and was severed.

The man, identified only as being in his 60s, had his arm trapped inside a boring machine at Lincoln Manufacturing Inc., said North Strabane fire Chief Mark Grimm.

A receptionist at Lincoln Manufacturing said company officials declined to comment.

The man's right arm was severed at the elbow, Grimm said. A life-flight crew rushed him to Allegheny General Hospital on Pittsburgh's North Side. His condition was not available.

The man was alert and conscious when firefighters arrived, Grimm said. Emergency crews responded about 9:30 a.m. North Strabane police and Canonsburg Ambulance Service also responded.

Lincoln Manufacturing designs, makes and repairs hydraulic cylinders used in coal and steel production. It also provides other machining, repair and sales services, according to its website.
