Bryan Green said he was checking to see whether yellow ink was being applied by a giant printing press when the machine grabbed his right hand a year ago in September. Green’s hand was mangled and bleeding, with finger bone showing, by the time he was able to remove it from the press at Johnson Bryce Inc. in Memphis.
