Two dozen Amazon workers at a facility in New Jersey have been hospitalized after a robot accidentally tore into a can of bear repellant spray, releasing it into the air at an indoor warehouse.

The 24 employees were treated at five different art hospitals, ABC Newsreported. One is in critical condition while another 30 were treated at the scene.

The robot revolution has begun!

 

IN all seriousness, I hope the people recover quickly.

And people think that machines will be taking place of humans. Imagine if this were a customer service location.

Hope everyone has a speedy recovery.

Wow, I'm glad that the fulfillment center I work in does not have the robots! The other center in Jacksonville uses the robots, we simply have to use our own power to get items!
