Man Left Stripped and Stunned

Chris at Strange Maine dug up some disturbing news items from old copies of the Daily Eastern Argus. The most palatable one calls to mind an episode of Home Improvement:
"Alton Hastings, engineer at Haley's mills, Bath, was caught by a nut on the main shaft Saturday forenoon, and completely stripped of clothing. He is delirious but it is hoped he is not fatally injured. No bones broken." (July 13, 1875. Vol. 43, no. 163) [Link]
