Abstract

Injuries resulting from rocking soda vending machines are severe and potentially fatal. Four cases of significant trauma stemming from soda vending machine accidents are reported: One patient died, one is disabled, and two healed uneventfully. As a result, we recommend securing heavy soda vending machines to prevent further injuries. To our knowledge, this is the first report on a mechanism of injury resulting from soda machines.
