Abstract: At 10:30 a.m. on July 2, 2019, an employee was trimming branches from a holly tree with a basket truck. The employee was trying to determine if the basket could reach a second tree from where the truck was parked when the arm of the basket got caught on a branch. The branch broke causing the arm to suddenly swing away which caused the employee to fall from the basket approximately 45 feet to the pile of trimmed holly limbs on the ground. The employee was hospitalized with fractures to his spine and index finger on left hand.
