Man cut in half after grinding disc flies from machine

Obert Matsitsiro of Tshabalala suburb died on the spot last Friday, after an unsecured grinding disc cut him in half, almost separating his lower body from the torso. The disc also split his skull open and cut his arm as it flew out of the grinder.

He was buried on Monday. Speaking to The Chronicle, family spokesperson, Mr David Matsitsiro, said:

I was not there when it happened. I only came to the scene after my brother had died. His son tells us that the disc came off as it was not properly secured. It cut him on the face near the ear and slit him through both legs and almost totally cut him in half. His other leg was left with just a thread of flesh attaching it to the rest of the body. It was such a horrible scene. My brother died a painful death. I am unemployed myself, and knowing that he was the breadwinner of his family, I wonder how we are going to start fending for this family as things are bound to be hard with all the funeral expenses that we incurred.
