According to report from German-language HNA, a robot has killed a contractor in a Volkswagen plant in Germany, near Frankfurt.
The 22-year-old man, whose name has not released, was crushed against a metal plate by the machine. According to officials, operator error may have caused the man’s death.
The plant is located in Baunatal, which is roughly 60 miles from Frankfurt, and doesn’t assemble vehicles, but is one of VW’s largest component producers.
Reports say the man was assembling the machine in the plant and was not a VW employee. No charges in the death have been filed though investigators are still trying to determine if any are applicable.

Oddly enough, this is the perfect story to celebrate the new Terminator film. I saw it last night.
Ford 1979 Kawasaki 1981 were the first two I could find.
DOUGBOT is definitely generating clicks with THIS one... *cough*
