I’ve witnessed two lathe incidents. One, a guy at high school back in the day, was filing right handed instead of left, and got caught by the lathe dog on the work piece. Fortunate for him, the clutch was in need of adjustment, so it slipped before it got to doing serious damage to him. Ripped sleeve on the shop coat, bruised arm and that was about it.

The other was a girl with a pony tail, dropped a chuck key, and when she went to pick it up, her pony tail caught in the leadscrew by the tailstock end.

Again, someone was able to shut it off before it scalped her. It was close, she had bruising and greasy hair, nothing more.
