    BERLIN (AP) — Police in western Germany say a slaughterhouse worker suffered serious injuries after being kicked in the face by a dead cow.

    In a statement, police said the cow was "killed according to regulations" early Thursday at an abattoir in Aalen, and hung from a meat hook for further processing.

    Police said the carcass then kicked the man in the face, apparently due to a nerve impulse that experts say isn't uncommon.

    The 41-year-old worker was hospitalized.
