A workplace injury of a more unusual kind occurred on Monday night in Falköping when a man was "cut" by a robot on the factory floor at Volvo, said GP on Tuesday.

Communication between the operator and the mechanic failed and the robot was turned on before the man had time to step away from a piece of metal on the machine.

The 25 year old suffered a cut on his buttocks. He was sent to hospital and received stitches and treatment for "minor injuries", reported GP.
