MANATEE COUNTY, FL (WFLA) - A female employee of Eaton Corporation is in the hospital after being trapped under heavy machinery.

Manatee County Sheriff's deputies say on Tuesday night Auy Hong Lam, 63, was moving a 2,000-pound machine, and got between the machine and a desk or table. One of the "jacks" gave way, and the machine fell on top of the woman.

Deputies along with the fire department were called to the scene at 2250 Whitfield Ave East.

They freed the woman and took her to Blake Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.
