A 30-year-old woman lost her arm in an accident at Lakeside Foods in Random Lake Monday morning. 

According to a news release,  Sheboygan County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of an industrial accident at the food plant on Allen Street in Random Lake. 

The woman's arm was torn off above the elbow and she was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee via Flight for Life from the Aurora Medical Center in Grafton. 

According to the release, the Sheboygan County Dispatch center used a new protocol called Emergency Medical Dispatch, which walked those on the scene through life-saving measures to help the woman until deputies arrived and were able to apply a proper tourniquet.
