A 61-year-old butcher in Hong Kong died while trying to kill a pig at Sheung Shui Slaughterhouse on 20 January, as reported by CNA.
He was getting ready to slaughter the pig with a chopper after stunning it with an electric stun gun, when the pig suddenly woke up and rammed into him.
The man then struggled with the pig and ended up being knocked onto the ground, and in the process suffered a fatal knife wound.
He was later found unconscious by a co-worker, who noticed that there was a gash on his foot and he was still holding on to the cleaver.
The butcher was then conveyed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
An investigation has been launched by the Hong Kong Labour Department to identify the cause of the accident, and they said that they will take actions if there is any violation of work safety.
