Abstract: On March 7, 2003, Employee #1 was working in a factory drilling a die. A coworker, lead man, instructed Employee #1 to remove a drill bit from a radial drill press, located in a nearby tool room. While Employee #1 was removing the drill bit, he accidentally pulled down on the drill press handle, activating the auto start function of the press. For some reason, his gloves got caught in the drill, which pulled his hand and arm into the machine. Employee #1 was hospitalized at the Harbor UCLA Hospital and treated for a compound fracture on his left forearm. He was released three days later.
