Abstract: On August 19, 2005, Employee #1, a welder with the Los Angeles City Parks and Recreation Department, was performing normally-assigned duties in a maintenance shop. He was using a Wilton drill press to drill holes in a metal bracket. Instead of using a vise or other fixed means to hold the bracket, he held it with a pair of vise-grip pliers. While drilling, the drill bit caught the bracket, pulled it from his hands, and spun it around. The bracket struck Employee #1's left upper arm. He was hospitalized for a compound fracture, which required surgery.
