Fish feed mixer kills Vietnamese man

28-09-2009 | |

A young man (21) from Vietman died when he fell into a fish feed mixer. The man was using a spade to turn over the feed in the mixer, some 1.5-2 meters in diameter, when he fell in.

Dang was killed instantly by spinning bars that mix the food, according to local residents in Chau Phu district’s Khanh Hoa Hamlet.

The mixer was at a tra catfish farm belonging to Dang’s neighbor, Nguyen Long Hai.

Three people have been killed by falling into fish-feed mixers in the district since the beginning of this year, a local newspaper reported. The mixers are made by private businesses that don’t test for safety.
