    A robot killed a 22-year-old worker at a Volkswagen plant in Germany, the company said on Thursday.

    The worker was part of a team helping to put together the robot that grabs and configures auto parts when the machine grabbed and pushed him against a metal plate, the Associated Press reported.

    The man later succumbed to his injuries. The automaker did not reveal the worker’s name.

    A spokesperson for the company, Heiko Hillwig, said initial investigations suggest human error was to blame for the incident.
    “Initial conclusions indicate that human error was to blame, rather than a problem with the robot, which can be programmed to perform various tasks in the assembly process,” the spokesperson said.

    “The robot normally operates within a confined area at the plant, grabbing auto parts and manipulating them,” he added.

    However, Hillwig refused to delve into further details claiming investigations were on going.

    Meanwhile, a German news agency has reported that prosecutors have started considering filing the lawsuit against the perpetrators, if any.

    Preliminary investigations suggest it was due to human error. Do not blame the robot it was only doing its duty. :dude:
