Panama City Man in Critical Condition After Being Crushed by Bowling Pin Machine

On the afternoon of April 21st, 2013, a bowling alley repair man sustained serious injuries when he was crushed by one of the bowling pin machines he was repairing. Despite the fact that the exact cause of the accident is still under investigation by the Panama City Beach Police Department, initial reports indicate 40-year-old William Martens failed to turn off the machine before he began working on it. As a result of that, and various other circumstances, Martens' arm ended up getting caught in the mechanisms and he was pulled under the machine. As soon as employees were made aware of the accident, they worked quickly to manually remove the machine off his body, however Martens was reportedly unresponsive by the time emergency crews arrived at the scene. Martens is currently listed in critical condition at Bay Medical-Sacred Heart.
