KIRO-TV investigates dangerous machinery at a local recycling plant. After a worked died, investigators discovered that managers failed to fix equipment or properly educate those operating it. The state of Washington did not launch an investigation until the reporter started asking questions. The investigation looks at a company using drug rehabilitation "as an excuse for free labor and a state agency falling down on the job."
