On March 6, 2013, an employee was working for a landscaping firm. He was spraying a chemical, named Grease Buster, from a backpack sprayer in a Bojangles' parking lot. The sprayer leaked and the Grease Buster went through his clothing and all three layers of his skin. The chemical was microbe-based and not caustic. Nonetheless, the employee was taken to the Craven County Hospital. He was transported from there to the Chapel Hill Burn Center, where he was receiving treatment at the time the original narrative was written.
