Work Robot Blamed for Michigan Woman’s Death

I'm not going to make my usual "robots will kill us all" joke here because tragically, a woman was killed by a rogue robot.

“Wanda was working in either section 140 or 150 within the ‘100’ cell, when a robot from section 130 took Wanda by surprise, entering the section she was working in. Upon entering the section, the robot hit and crushed Wanda’s head between a hitch assembly it was attempting to place in the fixture of section 140, and a hitch assembly that was already in the fixture,” the lawsuit states. Holbrook was found by co-workers and pronounced dead at the scene from severe head trauma.
