A slaughterhouse worker whose head was impaled on a hook, leaving him hanging in the air for an hour, has recalled the horrifying workplace injury. Jason Matahiki, known as Whopper, was cleaning New Zealand’s Rangiuru Affco meat plant when the 10cm hook hit his skull and came out under his eye, dragging him in the air.

 The company responsible for the meat plant – Affco New Zealand – was sentenced and fined $55,000 and found guilty of failing to follow safety rules.
