Lawton Bar-S Plant Worker Dies From Being Trapped In Machine

A Lawton Bar-S plant worker dies after becoming trapped in one of the machines Tuesday night.

Police report says Michael Raper was caught from the legs down inside a machine used to move materials in and out of a hole that is being drilled.

A fork lift had to be used to stabilize the machinery while it was cut in half in order to free Raper.

It took emergency responders nearly two hours to free him.

Raper was taken to Comanche Memorial.
