NEWTON (CBS) – A construction worker suffered severe injuries after he got his foot stuck in a cement mixer in Newton Thursday afternoon.

Fire crews say the man accidentally slipped while working at a building on LaGrange Street and his leg got twisted into the mixer.

A co-worker heard his screams and quickly turned the machine off.

It took rescuers about two hours to take apart the mixer and get him free.

He is now recovering at a local hospital.
