An engineer at Tesla’s Texas factory was attacked by a malfunctioning robot, resulting in a violent incident that left a trail of blood and prompted workers to activate the emergency shutdown button.

Tesla robot ATTACKS an engineer at company’s Texas factory during violent malfunction – leaving ‘trail of blood’ and forcing workers to hit emergency shutdown button

  • Data shows one in every 21 Giga Texas workers was injured on the job in 2022
  • And now an attorney aiding contract laborers at the factory tells DailyMail.com that there’s evidence Tesla UNDER-REPORTED accidents to state regulators  

A Tesla engineer was attacked by a robot during a brutal and bloody malfunction at the company’s Giga Texas factory near Austin.

Two witnesses watched in horror as their fellow employee was attacked by the machine designed to grab and move freshly cast aluminum car parts. 

The robot had pinned the man, who was then programming software for two disabled Tesla robots nearby, before sinking its metal claws into the worker’s back and arm, leaving a ‘trail of blood’ along the factory surface.

The incident – which left the victim with an ‘open wound’ on his left hand – was revealed in a 2021 injury report filed to Travis county and federal regulators, which has been reviewed by DailyMail.com.

While no other robot-related injures were reported to regulators by Tesla at the Texas factory in either 2021 or 2022, the incident comes amid years of heightened concerns over the risks of automated robots in the workplace.


As the Tesla engineer attempted to wrestle free from the robot’s grasp, eyewitnesses saw another worker hit an emergency ‘stop’ button. Once free, the engineer fell ‘a couple of feet down a chute designed to collect scrap aluminum, leaving a trail of blood behind him’

A 2021 official injury report appears to corroborate shocking witness accounts of a Tesla manufacturing robot’s brutal attack on an engineer at the company’s Giga Texas factory. Tesla must submit the reports to local authorities by law to maintain its lucrative tax breaks in state

Reports of increased injuries due to robotic coworkers at Amazon shipment centers, killer droid-surgeons, self-driving cars, and even violence from robotic chess instructors, have led some to question speedy integration of the new tech.  

The injury report, which Tesla must submit to authorities by law to maintain its lucrative tax breaks in Texas, claimed the engineer did not require time off of work.

But one attorney who represents Tesla’s Giga Texas contract workers has told DailyMail.com she believes, based on her conversations with workers there, that the number of injuries suffered at the factory is going underreported. 

This underreporting, the attorney said, even included the September 28, 2021 death of a construction worker, who had been contracted to help build the factory itself.

‘My advice would be to read that report with a grain of salt,’ the attorney, Hannah Alexander of the nonprofit Workers Defense Project, told DailyMail.com. 

‘We’ve had multiple workers who were injured,’ Alexander said, ‘and one worker who died, whose injuries or death are not in these reports that Tesla is supposed to be accurately completing and submitting to the county in order to get tax incentives.’ 

That construction worker, a contractor named Antelmo Ramírez, died of heat stroke while helping build Tesla’s over 2,000-acre long Giga Texas factory, according to a report from the Travis County medical examiner. 

California OSHA investigators, for example, found that Tesla had left out 36 injuries in its required government filings in 2018 alone — confirming a prior report by the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal team, which found that the company had misclassified a number of on-the-job accidents and injuries as ‘personal medical’ cases to evade California regulators.

A scant November 10, 2021 entry on Tesla’s Form 300 report to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) records a ‘laceration, cut, open wound’ inflicted on an ‘engineer’ for which, per the entry, the ’cause object’ was a ‘robot’
