This is the moment a noodle shop owner’s badly crushed hand is pulled free after being mangled inside a dough pressing machine.

The accident happened in the woman’s restaurant kitchen in the city of Zhaoqing in South China’s Guangdong Province during a suspected lapse in concentration.

She had reportedly been feeding dough into the machine’s roller when the glove on her left hand was snagged by the device too.

It then pulled her fingers into the presser, crushing her between the metal rollers which are used to flatten dough during the noodle preparation process.

Members of the fire service said they freed the woman using specialised hydraulic tools, which expanded the space between the rollers and created enough space for her to lift her left hand out.

Amazingly, she suffered no broken bones despite the cuts and bleeding on her fingers.

However, the fire service said the same noodle shop owner came to them just three hours later when she could not remove her ring due to the severe swelling.

Firefighters cut the jewellery off with a pair of pliers.
