A papermaking company is being sued by a woman who says she suffered burns and had her entire body and limbs cut off after she was trapped in a booby trap that she and her colleagues made with papermaking equipment.
In an interview with the New York Times on Thursday, the woman said she and a colleague who made a boombox had been working on a project in which they had to make paper plates.
The paper plates were meant to be cut in the factory but when the paper plates didn’t fit the machine, the machine malfunctioned, the lawsuit says.
“I thought, I can’t work anymore,” the woman, named in the suit as Lizzie Boombo, told the Times.
“Then the boombooks came out and they were so beautiful.”
The woman was trapped by a booboo during a workday in December 2015, the Times reports.
After she went to the hospital, her legs and arms were amputated and she suffered multiple cuts and abrasions.
She was also left with multiple burns to her body, and the burn on her leg and arm took more than four months to heal, according to the Times report.
She suffered another wound to her arm when she was attacked by a bee.
“All my bones were crushed, I couldn’t use my left hand to do anything,” she told the newspaper.
The boombook’s maker, Epson, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News.
