On May 20, 2007, Employee #1 was in the boiler room filling the boiler with water and watching the water level gauge. As he backed up along the base of the boiler, the back of his foot hit the boiler drain valve handle and it opened, spraying steam and water into the drain trough. The hot water hit the bottom and splashed back up onto his pant legs, causing burns to his legs. Employee #1 was initially treated on site with burn ointment. It was then determined to be a chemical burn and he was taken to the Grossman Burn Center, where he was hospitalized for treatment.
