A ravioli factory employee was pulled into a dough-kneading machine, and rescuers had to take it to New Rochelle Hospital along with the victim, authorities said.

Calvin Knight, of Mt. Vernon, was in stable condition Friday after undergoing surgery on his right arm, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Knight had disappeared completely in the six-foot-tall machine Thursday at John’s Ravioli Co., Fire Commissioner Raymond Kiernan said. Rescuers worked for more than an hour before Knight and the machine could be transported to the hospital, where the blades used to knead the dough were removed.
