On September 14, 2006, a senior maintenance employee was lifting a manhole cover with the use of a metal hook. As the employee lifted up the cover, it slipped off the hook. As he reached down with his left hand to grab the falling cover, it fell back into the manhole. The employee's left middle finger was caught between the lid and the edge of the ground ring. The employee sustained an amputation to the tip of his finger, but did not require hospitalization.
