A robot crushed a man to death in South Korea after the machine apparently failed to differentiate him from the boxes of produce it was handling, the Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

The man, a robotics company worker in his 40s, was inspecting the robot’s sensor operations at a distribution centre for agricultural produce in South Gyeongsang province.

The industrial robot, which was lifting boxes filled with bell peppers and placing them on a pallet, appears to have malfunctioned and identified the man as a box, Yonhap reported, citing the police.

The robotic arm pushed the man’s upper body down against the conveyor belt, crushing his face and chest, according to Yonhap.

The man accused of attacking the husband of former United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a teary apology in court as he explained he had been motivated by Right-wing conspiracy theories.


David DePape, 43, said he had planned to dress in an inflatable unicorn costume and confront Ms Pelosi in her home as part of a bigger plot to end what he viewed as government corruption.


Mr DePape testified that his plan was to get Ms Pelosi – and other targets – to admit to corruption.


“If she lied, I would break her kneecaps,” he said. “The choice is on her.”

I can't get over the fact that these four missing kids look like they should be on a quest to return the ring to Mordor

The names aren't helping either. One of the lads mums is called Crystal and all. 


Hopefully they're found safe and well.
