A Tesla engineer was attacked by a robot during a brutal and bloody malfunction at the company's Giga Texas factory near Austin. A 2021 official injury report appears to corroborate shocking witness accounts of a Tesla manufacturing robot's brutal attack on an engineer at the company's Giga Texas factory. This underreporting, the attorney said, even included the September 28, 2021 death of a construction worker, who had been contracted to help build the factory itself. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction workers in Texas were 22-percent more likely to die on the job in Texas than anywhere else in the country. This, the attorney argues, may have contributed to the factory workers' above-average injury rates.
