An unimaginably horrific way to die

Everyone knows that a steel mill can be a dangerous place to work. However, out of all the possible ways there are to die, it's difficult to envision anyone losing a life the same way that 25-year-old Thomas Alles did at the Lackawanna Steel Company mill in Lackawanna, New York in 1910.

Yes, I'm aware that this is a website devoted to weird things that have happened in Pennsylvania, not New York, but since Thomas Alles was born, raised and buried in Wilkes-Barre, it's close enough.
