There are fears a man has lost half of his leg at a poultry processing factory south of Sydney.

Reports say the 35-year-old man had half his leg ripped off in a machine at Ingham’s turkey processing facility on Ralfe Street in Tahmoor about 8am on Wednesday, a NSW Ambulance spokesman told AAP.

The man is still trapped in the machine at the site and a specialist medical team is arriving by helicopter.


A spokesman at the Ingham’s facility told AAP there was an incident at the site on Wednesday morning but wasn’t able to disclose further details.
