A WORKER was injured this afternoon when his penis became caught in machinery at a northern suburbs saw mill.
The man, 30, was working at the Parafield Gardens Saw Mill at about 1.50pm when his crotch and penis became caught in the chain of a piece of machinery.
He was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital. It is believed his injuries are not life threatening but he initially suffered uncontrollable bleeding.
A company spokesman said the man's injuries were not serious.
"He got caught in the log moving mechanism on one of the saws," he said.
