Woman severs four fingers in machine shop accident

October 13, 1998

A Manchester woman severed four fingers in an industrial accident at a machine shop in Hampstead yesterday, state police said.

Sandra J. Nunn, 36, of the 3900 block of Schalk Road No. 1 was taken by MedEvac helicopter to the Raymond M. Curtis Hand Center at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, where she was in good condition, a hospital spokesman said.

Nunn was working at an assembly machine at Fairlawn Tool and Die in the 1900 block of Hanover Pike in Hampstead when the accident occurred at 9: 30 a.m., said Tfc. Christopher Cole of the Westminster barracks.

Medical workers from Manchester said Nunn received first-aid from a volunteer firefighter, who works at Fairlawn.

A police report will be sent to Maryland Occupational Safety and Health officials, who will determine if the workplace accident should be investigated further, Cole said.
