    Why didn't one of them press the emergency stop button?

    Panic?

    It's definitely the first thing I would've done, but there are plenty of simpletons about.

    That's just awful. I saw the shorter video that isn't as bad earlier. It's just shocking that could happen.

    Yeah, probably fucking chewed her up too. Very bad way to go.

    Yeah, I guess people can freeze in situations like that. I have had to use the emergency stop button more than once in the past, so I guess it is just the first thing that I think of.

    Working with machinery all day long e-stops have become second nature to me. I always look out for them, in case I ever need them.
