The shortcut was to step over a conveyor belt that runs through the whole building. Placing her foot at the wrong place at the wrong time, it was pulled into the conveyor. Her left foot entered a hole not much larger than a quarter. She screamed, and another worker was able to stop the belt, saving Candace’s life. Maintenance crews were called to take the system apart.
