An employee at an onion processing plant in Pasco is rescued this afternoon after becoming caught in a piece of machinery.

Firefighters had to use special equipment to free the man at the Freeze Pack plant located on the 400 block of Commercial Avenue.

Because the extent of his injuries were unknown, the man was transported by helicopter to Kadlec Regional Medical Center.

Firefighters say the man sustained injuries to his right arm and shoulder.
