Firefighters worked to free a man in China's Hubei Province after his right arm got stuck in machinery. The man, who was working in a laundry room on his own, had become tightly stuck between two rollers in the machine. Using hydraulic clamps to cut the rollers, the rescue team eventually managed to free the man who was given first aid at the scene before being taken to hospital. Fortunately, he only sustained minor injuries and is due to leave hospital following treatment.

Interesting words: machinery (large machines), roller (cylinder), clamp (piece of equipment for holding things together), sustain (suffer).
