Baby's Hand Severed at Chocolate Factory

An 18-month-old girl's hand was cut off when it became caught in a conveyor belt at a chocolate factory she was touring with her family, officials said.

The girl's left hand was caught Saturday in a belt at the Menehune Mac Factory Gift Center, fire officials said. By the time firefighters arrived, employees had bandaged the girl and retrieved her hand.

"Our guys just put it in a bag on ice, just to preserve it in case doctors are able to do anything with it," Fire Capt. Chris Ah Mook Sang said.

She was taken to The Queen's Medical Center, which did not release her condition.

The girl and her family were attending the company's Fifth Annual Mother's Day Candy Making Event, a fundraiser for the Hawaii Children's Cancer Foundation.

Menehune Mac President Neal Arakaki said he was investigating.

"We feel so bad about this," he said. "This is something truly out of the ordinary. Everyone's just really shook up."

Arakaki said the factory was sanitized and production resumed in a different area of the factory.

Menehune Mac, founded in 1939, is the oldest existing manufacturer of macadamia nut candies in Hawaii, according its Web site.



美国夏威夷有关部门日前表示,一名18个月大的女孩在和家人一起参观当地一家巧克力工厂时,左手不幸被一条传送带缠住,并被切掉。

据美联社5月15日报道,5月13日,在夏威夷Menehune Mac巧克力工厂的礼品中心,一名女孩的左手不幸被一条传送带缠住,并被切掉。当救援人员赶到现场时,该工厂的职工已经为女孩包扎了伤口,并且找到了她断掉的左手。

救援人员把这只断手放进一个袋子里,并放在冰块上保存。这名女孩被送进了女王医疗中心接受治疗。

但该医疗中心未透露这名女孩现在的状况。

报道说,当时,这名女孩正和其家人一起参加Menehune Mac公司举办的第5届母亲节糖果生产活动。这是一项为夏威夷儿童癌症基金会募集资金的活动。

Menehune Mac公司的负责人尼尔·阿拉卡吉表示,他们正在对此事进行调查。他说:“我们对此感到非常难过。这真是一场意外事件,每个人都感到非常震惊。”

报道说,目前出事地点已经得到了清理,巧克力糖果的制作工作已被挪到另外一处工作区域。MenehuneMac公司成立于1939年,据信它是夏威夷现存最古老的生产马卡达姆坚果糖的厂家。
