Employee #1 had removed the plastic bottle from the holding fixture and noticed plastic shavings inside the rotobore cage. Employee #1 then stepped closer to the drill press. As he was reaching inside the rotobore cage with his right hand, he activated the drill press by stepping on the foot pedal activator. His right index finger was caught by the rotobore cutting teeth and partially amputated the finger. Employee #1 was taken to the University of Iowa Hospital by ambulance, where the doctors had to amputate the rest of the finger.
