On March 5, 1999, Employee #1, working for a small timber company, was felling trees in a remote area. The logging site was a helicopter sale, which means the terrain was very steep. Employee #1 fell a tree and was bucking it, when the tree shifted and slid into him, catching his leg. Another employee working with him cut the tree off Employee #1's leg. The other employee called for help from their vehicle. Employee #1 was removed from the work site and taken to the hospital where his leg was later amputated.
