On November 24, 1992, Employee #1, of Easton Aluminum Corporation, Van Nuys, CA, was operating draw bench 6B, pulling one tube in the center hole. Due to the type of material and the short length of the tubes, Employee #1 placed his left hand inside the machine between the side channel to catch the tube just as it had completed the draw cycle. But Employee #1 failed to remove his hand before the head of the machine returned to the forward position to draw another tube. His left hand and wrist became caught between the head of the machine and the die block. Employee #1 was taken by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics to Northridge Hospital, where he was given proper treatment.
