Several crews had to help free a man from a dough mixer at a Dallas baking company.

A 29-year-old man is recovering at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas after being stuck in a dough mixer on Saturday night.

It happened at BCW Food Products, Inc., on the 6000-block of Denton Drive.

The mixers are huge, sitting on the ground level and nearly reaching the ceiling.

Firefighters told NBCDFW the man fell into the mixer that was filled with dough and was trapped near the blade. He suffered serious injuries.

Firefighters had to cut around the heavy duty equipment and dough to get to the victim.  Dallas Fire Rescue called in its Urban Search & Rescue team, a specialized unit trained in unusual and complex rescues.

The surgical team from Parkland Hospital was called ot the scene to also assist the man.

It took an hour to get the man out.  His name and condition has not been released publicly.
