St John Ambulance paramedics called firefighters to cut the machine apart to free the woman, who was taken to Royal Perth Hospital about 1.20pm.

She is in a stable condition.

Fresca executive Jodie Gentle said the injured worker suffered a broken arm but was otherwise "fine".

WorkSafe investigators are on site and will try to piece together what happened.
