Accident In Steel Factory Covers Floor In Molten Metal

February 26, 2018

This is some security camera footage from a steel factory of a giant vat of molten steel missing its target and spilling its contents all over the floor where a worker was walking just moments prior (in my mind it was Jeff, known to his friends at the bar as Cheeser, 54, Pittsburgh Steelers fan and avid Budweiser drinker). Unlike the bridge over a water ride at an amusement park on a hot summer's day, that does not look like a very inviting splash zone.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Carsten, who's not convinced somebody wasn't trying to kill a Terminator.

    Amazing there wasn't anyone around. Seems like its during the day.

    common sense would dictate that employees arent allowed to just chill under the giant bucket of molten steel

    Good thing Trump cancelled all the safety inspections and regs.

    really though with the right lawyers they could settle a wrongful death suit for a fraction of what it would cost to actually ensure people arent going to be coated in molten steel. youre just not seeing the big picture here wretched.

    hell pass the right laws and its not even their legal responsibility anymore... wouldnt cost a dime. that (hypothetical) worker knew the risks!

    gotta use your head man there are far more profitable solutions to this problem.

    That's if the worker dies. It gets more expensive when the worker survives, so the workplace will have to look into ways to make it so dangerous that there are no survivors.

    Wow, glad the guy was in frame so I could appreciate the scale of that accident.

    (And glad he didn't get 'T-One Thousand-ed'.)

    No kidding! That really is a terrifying huge ball full of molten steel.

    that makes for one heck of a game of the floor is lava

  • GeneralDisorder

    "The floor is 100 degrees cooler than lava"

  • Andyman7714

    How in the hell do you clean that up? Magnetic shovels?

  • The_Wretched

    Wait for it to cool and then go in with the metal cutters and a broom.

  • urimind

    Enjoy your cool new metal-floor.
