BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (WLS) -- Bolingbrook fire officials say a man sustained non-life threatening injuries when his left arm became caught between two roller pins that are part of a conveyor belt assembly at a commercial bakery.

Fire officials say a 37-year-old employee of the Turano Knead Dough bakery in the 500-block of St. James became stuck around 6:45 a.m. A Life Star medical helicopter was requested as a precaution due to the prolonged extraction.

The employee was freed within one hour and transported via helicopter to Good Samaritan Hospital in stable condition.
