Man loses Penis and Testicles!

Oh my GOD! No mention if they reattached it...wonder?

A St. Cloud man is accusing a south Orange County company of negligence after one of its "peeler machines" cut off his penis in an industrial accident last year.



Edgardo Toucet Echevarria, 44, was injured Jan. 13, 2010 at Future Foam Carpet Cushion after he removed a "foam core" from a machine with a steel blade that is used to cut blocks of carpeting foam, according to a new lawsuit.



He was not trained in operating the machine and the maneuver he performed at the request of supervisors activated the equipment, the suit alleges.



The suit also claims employees had improperly removed a protective guard from the machine. The medical status of Echavarria, who is referred in the lawsuit as Edgardo Toucet, is not known. He did not return calls to the Orlando Sentinel this week.



"The surgically sharp steel blade sliced through Toucet's pelvis cutting off his penis and testicles while virtually cutting his body in half," the lawsuit states. Echavarria claims that Future Foam "had a duty not to behave in a manner that was virtually certain to result in death or injury to workers."
"Future Foam was aware of prior instances in which workers had suffered injury or death due to insufficient, tampered with, or missing protection on this type of machine," the lawsuit states. "[The company's] maintenance and repair staff had failed and/or refused to properly upgrade the guarding."
The lawsuit also includes a negligence claim against Baumer of America, the company that manufactures the peeler machine.



It is unclear if a complaint was filed with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the federal agency charged with investigating workplace injuries and deaths.



Legal documents show that in addition to the negligence claims, Echevarria is seeking punitive damages of more than $15,000 for disfigurement, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, medical expenses, loss of earnings, "virtual certainty," strict liability, and loss of earning capacity.

$15,000 doesn't seem like much for such a huge disaster to his life.

If you ever feel like you may be taking life too seriously just remember, we are only talking monkeys on an organic spaceship flying through the Universe.

How can anyone have their penis and testicles cut off with any machine in a work environment?! Surely he would have had to have got it out and put it in the machine?!

You will note that he is seeking more than 15000. In Florida all you have to plead is the jurisdictional minimum amount to get into a certain court 15000 is the jurisdictional minimum for the circuit court. Believe me he will ask the jury for millions!!
