According to a complaint filed with the Michigan court this month, when the robot \"surprised Wanda and entered the department where she worked\", the robot was assembled.
She works in one place and when a robot arm swings to where she works, the robot welds the bumper and steel plate of the truck on it.

Holbrook MS did not respond when the staff found a problem entering the area.
When the medical staff arrived, she was pronounced dead at the scene due to severe head trauma.
